Face Recognition for Authentication by Using Anthropometric Model

Abstract

This paper presents an automatic technique for detecting important facialfeatures’ points using a developed anthropometric face model. The facialfeatures’ points we work on are about the areas of mouth, nose, eyes andeyebrows. The anthropometric means the scientific study of the measurementsand proportions of the human face. Several processes are performed in orderto recognize human personality authenticated or not, these processes arebeginning by capturing colored image using fixed digital camera and endingby features isolated into separated sub images and the lengths and distancesamong them representing authenticated persons information are stored intodatabase..In authentication stage all the extracted features are compared with storedauthenticated facial features in the database, the person is authenticated if apercentage of similarity equal to or greater than 78% is achieved.
