Biometrics has carved an important place in the field of identification and authentication. Identification in biometrics includes various applications like face recognition. There are scads of work done in the area of face recognition but we feel that there is not much of work has been done in the field of age determination. The age determination technique is useful to determine the age of an unknown body found in criminal activities or in lost and found cases using offline face recognition. The aging process not only depends on the person's biological aspect such as genes but may also depend on physical aspect such as wrinkles on the person's face. In this paper a novel technique is proposed to determine the age of a person by analysing the wrinkles present on his/her face. A framework has been designed which is based on the principle that the age of a person varies proportionally with the depth of wrinkles. The experimental result obtained found out to have 20% error which is within practical limits.
