This paper considers the face identification task in video sequences where the individual’s face presents variations; such as expressions, pose, scale, shadow/lighting and occlusion. The principles of Synthetic Discriminant Functions (SDF) and K-Law filters are used to design an adaptive unconstrained correlation filter (AUNCF). We developed a face tracking algorithm which together with a face recognition algorithm were carefully integrated into a video-based face identification method. First, a manually selected face in the first video frame is identified. Then, in order to build an initial correlation filter, the selected face is distorted so that it generates a training set. Finally, the face tracking task is performed using the initial correlation filter which is updated through the video sequence. The efficiency of the proposed method is shown by experiments on video sequences, where different facial variations are presented. The proposed method correctly identifies and tracks the face under observation on the tested video sequences.
