Face Analysis Using Row and Correlation Based Local Directional Pattern

Srinivasa Perumal Ramalingam


Face analysis, which includes face recognition and facial expression recognition, has been attempted by many researchers and gave ideal solutions. The problem is still active and challenging due to an increase in the complexity of the problem viz. due to poor lighting, face occlusion, low-resolution images, etc. Local pattern descriptor methods introduced to overcome these critical issues and improve the recognition rate. These methods extract the discriminant information from the local features of the face image for recognition. In this paper, the local descriptor based two methods, namely row-based local directional pattern and correlation-based local directional pattern proposed by extending an existing descriptor -- local directional pattern (LDP). Further, the two feature vectors obtained by these methods concatenated to form a hybrid descriptor. Experimentation has carried out on benchmark databases and results infer that the proposed hybrid descriptor outperforms the other descriptors in face analysis.
