There are many applications for systems coping with the problem of face localization and recognition, e.g. model-based video coding, security systems and mug shot matching. Due to variations in illumination, back-ground, visual angle and facial expressions, the problem of machine face recognition is complex. In this paper we present a robust approach for the extraction of facial regions and features out of color images. First, face candidates are located based on the color and shape information. Then the topographic grey-level relief of facial regions is evaluated to determine the position of facial features as eyes and month. Results are shown for two example scenes
