Analysis of Different M-Band Wavelet Filters for Face Recognition using Nearest Neighbor Classifier

C Hemalatha, E Logashanmugam


Face recognition system is one of the most interesting studied topics in computer vision for past two decades. Among the other popular biometrics such as the retina, fingerprint, and iris recognition systems, the face recognition is capable of recognizing the uncooperative samples in a non-intrusive manner. Also, it can be applied to many applications of surveillance security, forensics, border control, digital entertainment where face recognition is used in most. In the proposed system an automatic face recognition system is discussed. The proposed recognition system is based on the Dual-Tree M-Band Wavelet Transform (DTMBWT) transform algorithm and features obtained by varying the different filter in the DTMBWT transform. Then the different filter features are classified by means of the K-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) classifier for recognizing the face correctly. The implementation of the system is done by using the ORL face image database, and the performance metrics are calculated.
