A completely automatic face recognition system is presented. The method works on color and gray level images: after having localized the face and the facial features, it determines 16 facial fiducial points, and characterizes them by applying a bank of filters which extract the peculiar texture around them (jets). Recognition is realized by measuring the similarity between the different jets. The system is inspired by the elastic bunch graph method, but the fiducial point localization does not require any manual setting or operator intervention.
