Biometrics, a biological measurement and refers to the automatic identification of a
person based on his or her physiological or psychological characteristics. This project
defines biometrics and its application in the real world focusing the study on facial
recognition. Facial recognition is the identification of an individual based on the facial
data characteristics such as facial features and face position. The objective of this project
is to develop a program which could verify a face when compared to a database of
known faces by using MATLAB. This project also explains the details of facial
recognition especially on the four main facial recognition categories and other
components related in characterizing a face. It also lists the various approaches in
handling facial recognition where we see different methods applied and opinions on
which method is better and what factors influenced them. Among the various
approaches, eigenface technique is explained in detail including its work procedure,
algorithm and the tools applied. Main part of this project discussed on the project
findings. The result and output produced is elaborated according to the sequence of the
program developed where many face images displayed. Finally, this project reviews the
relevancy of the study contents with the objectives and listed out some recommendation
for further work expansion.
