Abstract: Now a days, security based applications are developed widely and these systems are adopted in various real-time applications. Visual surveillance is considered as a most promising technique where certain objects can be detected, tracked and recognized using computer vision based approaches. In this field, face detection and recognition is considered as the important part of surveillance system. Several approaches have been developed for face recognition but existing approaches are applied on the face data. Recently, video face detection techniques are also introduced which provides more information to improve the security system. In this work, we emphasize on the detection of face, along with tracking and recognition using computer vision approach. In order to achieve this objective, first of all we utilized face detection and tracking approach using Kalman filtering. After face detection, we extract the combined features of the input image and stored the trained data. The learning process is developed using Bayesian learning approach. The proposed approach is implemented on benchmark datasets such as IARPA Janus Benchmark A (IJB-A), the YouTube Face repository and the Celebrity-1000 repository. A comparative performance evaluation is carried out which shows the robust performance of proposed approach.
