This paper discusses a face recognition system for a dialogue interface robot that really works in ubiquitous environments and reports an experimental result of real-life test in a ubiquitous environment. While a central module of the face recognition system is composed of the decomposed eigenface method, the system also includes a special face detection module and the face registration module. Since face recognition should work on images captured by a camera equipped on the interface robot, all the methods are tuned for the interface robot. The face detection and recognition modules accomplish robust face detection and recognition when one of the registered users is talking to the robot. Some interesting results are reported with careful analysis of a sufficient real-life experiment.
