The Ways To Wear a Mask or a Respirator Database (WWMR-DB) is a test database that can be used to compare the behavior of current mask detection systems with images that most closely resemble the real case. It consists of 1222 images divided into 8 classes, depicting the most common ways in which masks or respirators are worn:
- Mask Or Respirator Not Worn
- Mask Or Respirator Correctly Worn
- Mask Or Respirator Under The Nose
- Mask Or Respirator Under The Chin
- Mask Or Respirator Hanging From An Ear
- Mask Or Respirator On The Tip Of The Nose

Recently, the coronavirus pandemic has made the use of facial masks and respirators common, the former to reduce the likelihood of spreading saliva droplets and the latter as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). As a result, this caused problems for the existing face detection algorithms. For this reason, and for the implementation of other more sophisticated systems, able to recognize the type of facial mask or respirator and to react given this information, we created the Facial Masks and Respirators Database (FMR-DB).
For reasons related to the copyright of the images, we cannot publish the entire database here. If you are a student, a professor, or a researcher and you want to use it for research purposes, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org attaching the license, duly completed, which you can find here on IEEE DataPort.
