In this paper, we propose a novel technique for expression invariant face recognition, which is different from eigenfaces method from two aspects: the first is that instead of applying Principal Component Analysis (PCA) on the pixel domain to obtain eigenfaces, we train eigenmotion by applying PCA on motion vectors getting from the training face images with expression variations; the second is to consider the reconstructed errors of a test image in two spaces: the between-class eigenmotion

Experimental results show that this method performs better than eigenfaces method in the presence of facial expression variations.
