Automated Facial recognition is a very complex problem due to the many factors that affect the way an image of a person’s face looks. Most of these have no relation to the actual identity of the person. The algorithms used to solve this issue can take advantage of a high level of parallelism and the applications require real time processing. For these reasons, an implementation on hardware is very convenient. In this article, such implementation is presented using a Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA using one of the most common algorithms, called Eigen Faces.
