This paper focuses on an effective face recognition algorithm of poor quality video data and its real-time implementation. As the fundamental step of our approach, a fast face detection method based on color information is presented. Instead of performing a pixel-based color segmentation on each single face image, we incorporate color information into a face detection scheme based on spatio-temporal filtering in image sequences, which can reduce the noises in surveillance video. Our face recognition method is based on principal component analysis (PCA) that is fairly effective and fast for surveillance video in comparison with feature-based methods. For the training set, a large database of numerous face images of each subjects, digitized at the condition of three head orientations is setup. We use separate eigenspaces for different views of head orientations, so that the collection of images taken from each view of head orientations will have its own eigenspace. For real-time implementation, a automatic face detection and recognition system with TI Digital Signal Processor(DSP) TMS320C6201 is described.
