In this work we investigate the impact of out-offocus blur and thermal noise, on the segmentation accuracy of automated ear detection. Realistic acquisition scenarios are constructed and various intensities of signal degradation are simulated on a comprehensive dataset. In experiments different ear detection algorithms are employed, pointing out the effects of severe signal degradation on ear segmentation performance.
