A Novel Approach for Face Recognition Based on a Multiple Faces Database


This paper presents an algorithm and then MATLAB program that can construct and process an image depending on a given database and face recognition technique, which helps in the operations of investigation issues for policemen and in any similar operations, the image gets constructed and implemented as the database is developed. It is found that such image processing operation helps in operations needs quick investigation transactions of some issues like policemen works and operations. The method depends on the given database about the face of the person, the face recognition depends on drawing a face of the given data and then comparing the resulted face with the stored data and find the most closes one and choose it to be its goal. This operation needs a time, it is not real-time operation but the time needed is too short. This method develop a method to make the operation of searching about some unknown person or face faster which helps more all sectors interested in searching about some unknowns in their transactions.
