Luong Anh Tuan Nguyen . Facial Recognition based on Histogram Matching with Adaptive Threshold. Communications on Applied Electronics. 7, 8 ( Oct 2017), 1-5. DOI=10.5120/cae2017652702
Facial recognition was a field that was extensively studied in the past years but it is still an active area of research. This paper proposes a new method by matching histogram with adaptive threshold. The proposed method is simple but effective and it can be use for real-time system. Publicly available AT&T database is used for the evaluation of the proposed method, which is consisted of 40 subjects with 10 images per subject containing variations in lighting, posing, and expressions. The proposed method provides a recognition rate higher than 99% and a verification error lower than 1%.
