Paper Abstract

Thermal imaging has been widely used for many applications. Thermal camera is used to measure object’s temperature above absolute temperature of 0 Kelvin using infrared radiation emitted by the object. Thermal imaging is color mapping taken using false color that represents temperature. Human body is one of the objects that emits infrared radiation. Human infrared radiations vary according to the activity that is being done. Physical activities such as jogging is among ones that is commonly done. Therefore this experiment will investigate the thermal signature profile of jogging activity in human body, especially in the face parts. The results show that the significant increase is found in periorbital area that is near eyes and forehand by the number of 7.5%. Graphical temperature distributions show that all region, eyes, nose, cheeks, and chin at the temperature of 28.5 – 30.2°C the pixel area tends to be constant since it is the surrounding temperature. At the temperature of 30.2 – 34.7°C the pixel area tends to increase, while at the temperature of 34.7 – 37.1°C the pixel area tends to decrease because pixels at temperature of 34.7 – 37.1°C after jogging activity change into temperature of 30.2 – 34.7°C so that the pixel area increases. The trendline of jogging activity during 10 minutes period also shows the increasing of temperature. The results of each person also show variations due to physiological nature of each person, such as sweat production during physical activities.
