Abstract

The use of masks due to the Covid-19 pandemic reduces the accuracy of facial recognition systems applied to camera-based security systems. The use of the mask by the people covers most of the facial featureswhich is located from middle to bottom area. In addition, the area which are still visible are the upper face which are eyes and forehead. This paper proposes a masked face recognition using a combination of RetinaFace as a face detector and FaceNet as a face recognizer. The MFR2 dataset with 53 identities was used to train and test this method. The test data in this study are only images of masked faces. Cosine Distance was implemented to measure the face similarity. Based on the experiment results, the proposed method obtained 98.2% of detection accuracy. The proposed method provided 78% accurate performance with 3.63 s for processing a single frame in terms of face recognition. The performance indicates that our system can potentially be applied in security systems with many different identities.
