Classification of Log-Polar-Visual Eigenfaces using Multilayer Perceptron

07/05/2010 ∙ by Mrinal Kanti Bhowmik, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper we present a simple novel approach to tackle the challenges of scaling and rotation of face images in face recognition. The proposed approach registers the training and testing visual face images by log-polar transformation, which is capable to handle complicacies introduced by scaling and rotation. Log-polar images are projected into eigenspace and finally classified using an improved multi-layer perceptron. In the experiments we have used ORL face database and Object Tracking and Classification Beyond Visible Spectrum (OTCBVS) database for visual face images. Experimental results show that the proposed approach significantly improves the recognition performances from visual to log-polar-visual face images. In case of ORL face database, recognition rate for visual face images is 89.5 for log-polar-visual face images whereas for OTCBVS face database recognition rate for visual images is 87.84
