Abstract—This paper presents a new approach to classify salient points as belonging to objects in the face classes. Speeded-Up Robust Features (SURF) algorithm is used to generate feature descriptors. SURF is applied on the subband images generated using either DWT Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) or Gabor Wavelet Transform (GWT). The matching scores obtained from these subband images are fused and final decision is reached. Experiments results indicate that our proposed approach showed increase in the performance for both wavelet transforms when applied on the well-known ORL and PUT face databases.
