This paper proposes a new powerful distance measure called Normalized Unmatched Points (NUP). This measure can be used in a face recognition system to discriminate facial images. It works by counting the number of unmatched pixels between query and database images. A face recognition system has been proposed which makes use of this proposed distance measure for taking the decision on matching. This system has been tested on four publicly available databases, viz. ORL, YALE, BERN and CALTECH databases. Experimental results show that the proposed measure achieves recognition rates more than 98.66% for the first five likely matched faces. It is observed that the NUP distance measure performs better than other existing similar variants on these databases.
