Abstract
In this paper, a face recognition method using local qualitative representations is proposed to solve the problem of face recognition in varying lighting. Based on the observation that the ordinal relationship between the average brightness of image regions pair is invariant under lighting changes, Local Binary Mapping is defined as an illumination invariant for face recognition based on Local Binary Pattern descriptor, which extracts the local variance features of an image. For the 'symbol' feature vector, hamming distance is used as similarity measurement. It has been proved that the proposed method can provide the accuracy of 100 percent for subset 2, 3, 4 and 98.89 percent for subset 5 of the Yale facial database B when all images in subset 1 are used as gallery.
