Biometric access systems have come a long way. Methods such as voice based access, speaker recognition; finger print recognition, password key systems and face recognition are a few important modes of biometric access systems. Face recognition, verification of authenticity based on the matching of a person's face, is a complex algorithm involving several methods. This paper aims to implement a face recognition software code based on the method of Principal Component Analysis and to successfully implement this code on the Raspberry Pi platform for real time recognition. In this paper, an attempt to implement face recognition algorithm on a hardware platform, which is simple, yet efficient in usage is taken up.
