ABSTRACT Face recognition has great demands in human recognition and recently it becomes one of the most important research areas of biometrics. In this paper, we present a novel layered face recognition method based on Fisher's linear discriminant analysis. The basic aim is to decrease FAR by reducing the face dataset to small size by applying layered linear discriminant analysis. Although, the computational complexity at the time of recognition is much higher than conventional PCA and LDA due to the weights computation for small subspace at the time of recognition, but on the other hand the layered LDA provides significant performance gain especially on similar face database. Layered LDA is insensitive to large dataset and also small sample size and it provides 93% accuracy on BANCA face database. Experimental and simulation results show that the proposed scheme has encouraging results for a practical face recognition system.

    ABSTRACT: Biometrics security analysis and performance evaluation of the following Face Recognition Algorithms is performed: Principal Components Analysis (PCA), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) and Bayesian Intrapersonal/Extrapersonal Classifier (BIC), using the BANCA database. Software tools retrieve and preprocess images from sequential records within the BANCA database for algorithm evaluation. Then a verification environment over the set of images to be tested is developed, the above algorithms are invoked over the verification set, and verification parameters are collected. Results proved PCA performed most accurately and effectively with regards to security concerns, with an average recognition rate of 93%, while LDA and BIC lagged behind with recognition rates ranging from 80%-83%.

    ABSTRACT: Security can be enhanced through wireless sensor network using contactless biometrics and it remains a challenging and demanding task due to several limitations of wireless sensor network. Network life time is very less if it involves image processing task due to heavy energy required for image processing and image communication. Contactless biometrics such as face recognition is most suitable and applicable for wireless sensor network. Distributed face recognition in WSN not only help to reduce the communication overload but it also increase the node life time by distributing the work load on the nodes. This paper presents state-of-art of biometrics in wireless sensor network.

    ABSTRACT: Dimensionality reduction has been a key problem in Face Recognition. Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is a recent approach for dimensionality reduction. Locality Preserving Projections (LPP) is also a recently proposed new method in pattern recognition for feature extraction and dimension reduction. In this paper we have developed and analyzed the face recognition rate of ICA and LPP under varying illuminations and facial expressions. Analyzes is performed on YALEB databases which contains 64 illuminations conditions (5760 images) and ATT databases which contains major facial expressions (400 images). From the results we conclude that the best algorithm to recognize images with varying illuminations is ICA. On the other hand to recognize image with varying facial expressions, LPP is better to use because it has better recognition rate.
