Overview
Between October and December 2000 we collected a database of 41,368 images of 68 people. By extending the CMU 3D Room we were able to image each person under 13 different poses, 43 different illumination conditions, and with 4 different expressions. We call this database the CMU Pose, Illumination, and Expression (PIE) database.

The following images and movies illustrate the variation in the database.
Pose:


Illumination:

Expression:
