This work raises the questions of face detection and recognition in the annex to the task of the accounting of visit by students of classes in higher education institution. Firstly, features of the task are discussed, the general structure of system, the main stages of its functioning is offered. Further attention is paid to discussion of the most important algorithms of system: detections of faces on the image received from the camera and recognitions of these faces. For the solution of the task of detection, using Viola-Jones algorithms is discussed. The problem of recognition is solved by the LBPH method. Based on the described algorithms the prototype of system of identification of persons on the image is realized and practical tests of a prototype are carried out, conclusions are drawn. Experiments show the good results confirming prospects of system for the solution of the task of the accounting of visits of occupations by students.


Keywords: face recognition; face detection; image processing; pattern recognition and processing; algorithm Viola –Jones; algorithm LBPH.
