Paper Abstract

The idea of this project development is to improve the concept of human face recognition that has been studied in order to apply it for a more precise and effective recognition of human faces, and offered an alternative to agencies with respect to their access-departure control system. To accomplish this, a technique of calculation of distances between face features, including efficient face recognition though a neural network, is used. The system uses a technique of image processing consisting of 3 major processes: 1) preprocessing or preparation of images, 2) feature extraction from images of eyes, ears, nose and mouth, used for a calculation of Euclidean distances between each organ; and 3) face recognition using a neural network method. Based on the experimental results from reading image of a total of 200 images from 100 human faces, the system can correctly recognize 96 % with average access time of 3.304 sec per image.
