Recently, the research in face recognition has focused on developing a face representation that is capable of capturing the relevant information in a manner which is invariant to facial expression and illumination. Motivated by a simple but powerful texture descriptor, called Local Binary Pattern (LBP), our proposed system extends this descriptor to evoke multiresolution and multispectral analysis for face recognition. The first descriptor, namely Multi-scale Local Binary Pattern Histogram (MLBPH), provides a robust system which is relatively insensitive to localisation errors because it benefits from the multiresolution information captured from the regional histogram.
