Human ear has attracted researcher's attention recently due to its stable biometrics nature. In this paper, the authors have implemented human recognition system through 2D ear images and proposed a novel algorithm for human recognition by ear based on average ear method. Algorithm is tested on University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB) data set of 60 subjects on 180 ear images. They have also discussed different sources of freely available data base and finding of various authors in the same direction. This paper is very useful for those who are budding researches in this area.
