In this paper a completely automatic face recognition system is presented. The method works on color images: after having localized the face and the facial features, it determines 19 facial fiducial points, and characterizes them applying a bank of Gabor filters which extract the peculiar texture around them (jets). Recognition is realized measuring the similarity between the different jets. The system is inspired by the Elastic Bunch Graph method, but the fiducial point localization does not require any manual setting or operator intervention, it works on images of different scales, and it is omputationally more efficient.
