Face recognition is a wide area which is currently studied by lot of researchers andvendors but still there are some areas that even researchers have not touched. Partialface recognition can be considered as one of these areas. Few years back researchersconsidered that partial face recognition is an unrealistic approach because there isless information which can use to recognize a person. But after the researchconducted by researchers like Sato et al (1998), it is proven that partial face regionalso contain some amount of information that can use to recognition.By conducting this project, I tried to investigate how far partial face regions involverecognizing individual. The artifact allows users to input probe images and then thesystem will determin
e individual’s face whose belongs that particular face region.
Even though it appears to be a simple process the system should perform intensiveamount of work to achieve it.A domain research, which has conducted to identify and study about the problem,related to face recognition, similar system. Then by analysing it I decided to the areathat needed constrain in system research.During system research researcher studied about the fundamentals about the imageprocessing, face detection techniques and face recognition techniques. Then afteranalysing them it decided to select appropriate techniques to extract partial faceregions and recognize individuals.The document contains introduction, domain research, system research, projectdevelopment plan, requirement specification and technical investigation, whichcontain details about above-mentioned areas.Finally appropriate image processing techniques, face detection techniques and facerecognition techniques were selected and justified along with selection of the projectdeveloping methodologies and project developing platforms.
