Paper Abstract

Automatic face recognition in real life environment is challenged by various issues such as the object motion, lighting conditions, poses and expressions. In this paper, we present the development of a system based on a refined Enhanced Local Binary Pattern (ELBP) feature set and a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier to perform face recognition in a real life environment. Instead of counting the number of 1's in ELBP, we use the 8-bit code of the thresholded data as per the ELBP rule, and then binarize the image with a predefined threshold value, removing the small connections on the binarized image. The proposed system is currently trained with several people's face images obtained from video sequences captured by a surveillance camera. One test set contains the disjoint images of the trained people's faces to test the accuracy and the second test set contains the images of non-trained people's faces to test the percentage of the false positives. The recognition rate among 570 images of 9 trained faces is around 94%, and the false positive rate with 2600 images of 34 non-trained faces is around 1%. Research work is progressing for the recognition of partially occluded faces as well. An appropriate weighting strategy will be applied to the different parts of the face area to achieve a better performance.
