Research on Face Recognition Based on Wavelet Transform and PCA-ANN


This paper mainly studies the basic theory and technology on the identification of people’s faces. The better methods are chosen and a new method is proposed. It integrates three elements (Wavelet Transform, Principal Component Analysis, Artificial Neural Networks), and the method can recognize faces more effectively. Meanwhile, this method lessens the effect of light on face appearance. Experimental result indicates that our new face recognition system is effective in the aspects of both correct ratio and speed of distinguishing.
