Paper Abstract

The SIFT (Scale Invariant Feature Transform) is a well known algorithm used to detect and describe local features in images. It is invariant to image scale, rotation and robust to the noise and illumination. In this paper, a novel method used for face recognition based on SIFT is proposed, which combines the optimization of SIFT, mutual matching and Progressive Sample Consensus (PROSAC) together and can eliminate the false matches of face recognition effectively. Experiments on ORL face database show that many false matches can be eliminated and better recognition rate is achieved.
