In this paper, a robust personal identification system which is adaptable for the face wearing spectacles is presented.
A human face identification system based on the isodensity maps has been already presented.It has been confirmed that the three dimensional personal features are well reflected in the isodensity maps. On the other hand, when the registered image is a face without spectacles and the input image is a face with spectacles, the shapes of the input isodensity maps are changed caused by the spectacles and are different from the registered isodensity maps. Then, the identification accuracy was deteriorated. From this point of view, the spectacles are removed from input faces, and we tried to improve the the matching accuracy.
Computer simulation using 50 people shows 95.2% correct discrimination accuracy.
