Face Recognition By Using Eigen Face Method

[Full Text]



V. Jalaja, G.S.G.N. Anjaneyulu



Face Recognition, Eigen values , Eigen Vectors, Image Quality Metrics, Euclidean Distance and Mean Square Error.



In this paper, a methodology for face recognition using Eigen faces is being discussed. The key idea of the proposal we consider a set of images then we applied Eigen faces on that set for recognition of faces. First a set of images has been considered as a training set. Then calculations were performed on training set, finally the images have been concluded by computing the Euclidian distance between the image in the training set and newly computed image. Test results for various number of faces are appeared to confirm the suitability of the proposed technique and also we discussed some image metrics. Finally we demonstrated the security analysis like time complexity.
