Three stage face recognition algorithm for visitor identification system

  • Adam Nowosielski


In this paper a three stage face recognition algorithm is proposed. It utilizes well known recognition methods connected in a sequential mode. Some modifications to original methods are presented. The aim was to build a visitor identification system which would be able to operate in mode with a camera and present results on-line. The emphasis on speed and accuracy was stressed.
