Face recognition concept is one of the successful and important applications of image analysis. It's a holistic approach towards the technology and has potential applications in various areas such as biometrics, information society, law enforcement and surveillance, smart cards, access control etc. This paper provides an overview of real time application of face recognition concept by generating a matlab code using image acquisition tool box. The basic approach used is principal component analysis using Eigen faces, popularized by the seminal work of Turk and Pentland.
