Face Recognition Based on Viola-Jones Face Detection Method and Principle Component Analysis (PCA)


Face recognition is one of the most important research fields of the lasttwo decades. This is due to the actual use of this technology in automatic detectionand monitoring systems. Face attribute and features recognition from images isstill a challenge. In this paper, face image recognition is proposed upon local faceimage rather than focusing on the whole image recognition by applying preprocessingtechniques and Viola-Jones method. Principal Component Analysis(PCA) method is used in order to extract the needed features. Experiments showsatisfied and more accurate results achieved by the proposed system comparing tothe existing systems.
