Abstract
In the Fall of 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 the CMU Pose, Illumination, and Expression (PIE) database. We describe the imaging hardware, the collection procedure, the organization of the images, several possible uses, and how to obtain the database.
