Abstract
Between October 2000 and December 2000 we collected a database of over 40,000 facial images of 68 people. Using the CMU 3D Room we imaged each person across 13 different poses, under 43 different illumination conditions, and with 4 different expressions. We call this database the CMU Pose, Illumination, and Expression (PIE) database. In this paper we describe the imaging hardware, the collection procedure, the organization of the database, several potential uses of the database, and how to obtain the database.
