Abstract Illumination variation generally causes performance degradation of face recognition systems under real life environments. So a new technique called an illumination robust face recognition system using a fusion approach based on efficient facial feature called differential two-dimensional principal component analysis (D2D-PCA) for consumer applications. In the proposed method, face images are divided into two sub-images to minimize illumination effects, and D2D-PCA is separately applied to each sub-images. The individual matching scores obtained from two sub-images are then integrated using a weighted-summation operation, and the fused-score is utilized to classify the unknown user. This helps the user to authenticate, correct person even though illumination occurs.

Keywords— Illumination, Face recognition, component analysis.
