The purpose of this research is to recognize a face with an near-infrared camera. The face detection that used images from near-infrared camera is comparatively difficult to be don, because they are gray scale images. In this paper, the filter by using GA is designed, and the method of detecting the face and the position from the near-infrared images is proposed. It is demonstratet that our approach is effective for vehicle driver monitoring.
