Abstract

In this paper, a face recognition approach using Zernike moments is presented for the main purpose of detecting faces in surveillance cameras. Zernike moments are invariant to rotation and scale and these properties make them an appropriate feature for automatic face recognition. A Viola-Jones detector based on the Adaboost algorithm is employed for detecting the face within an image sequence. Preprocessing is carried out wherever it is needed. A fuzzy enhancement algorithm is also applied to achieve uniform illumination. Zernike moments are then computed from each detected facial image. The final classification is achieved using a kNN classifier. The performance of the proposed methodology is compared on three different benchmark datasets. The results illustrate the efficacy of Zernike moments for the face recognition problem in video surveillance.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
