We tried to develop a real time face detection and recognition system which uses an "appearance-based" approach. For detection purpose we used Viola Jones algorithm. To recognize face we worked with Eigen Faces which is a PCA based algorithm. In a real time to recognize a face we need a data training set. For data training set we took five images of each person and manipulated the Eigen values to match the known individual.
