The aim of our work is to implement a system,of automatic face image processing on DSP's: face detection in an image, face recognition and face identification. The first step is to localize the face in an image. Our approach consists to approximate the face oval shape with an ellipse and to compute coordinates of the center of the ellipse. For this purpose, we explore a new version of the Hough transformation: the Fuzzy Generalized Hough transformation. To reduce the computation time, we present also several parallel implementations of the algorithm on a multi-DSP architecture using SynDEx tool which is a programming environment to generate optimized distributed real-time executives. We show that an acceleration of factor 1.7 has been obtained.
