Abstract:


The identity of a person in social networking becomes very important especially when we want to identify a person. Search for detailed-identity can easily be conducted through a search engines or existing social networking website using computer or laptop. This method is not effective and practical when we consider the development of the mobile device technology in the community such as smartphone and tablet. Therefore, we have designed a face recognition system on mobile devices based on cloud computing services. The system is designed in the form of an application developed on Android mobile devices. The use of Android Face Detector API will act as libraries in the process of face detection before performing the offloading stage. This paper describes the implementation of the facial recognition module on mobile device using cloud computing service with REST communication. The result in mobile device indicate that total computation time for the face recognition system reached 7.45 seconds with the onloading process of 0.45 seconds and the offloading process of 7 seconds.
