In order to solve the problem that real-time face recognition is susceptible to illumination changes, this paper proposes a face recognition method that combines Local Binary Patterns (LBP) and Embedded Hidden Markov Model (EHMM). Face recognition method. The method firstly performs LBP preprocessing on the input face image, then extracts the feature vector, and finally sends the extracted feature observation vector to the EHMM for training or recognition. Experiments on multiple face databases show that the proposed algorithm is robust to illumination and improves recognition rate.
