In the form of the image integral, this primitive feature accelerates the performance of the Viola-Jones algorithm. However, the robust feature is necessary to optimize the results of emotion recognition. Previous research [11] has shown that fisher face optimized projection matrix in the low dimensional features. This feature reduction approach is expected to balance time-consuming and accuracy. Thus we proposed emotion recognition using fisher face-based Viola-Jones Algorithm. In this study, PCA and LDA are extracted to get the fisher face value. Then fisher face is filtered using Cascading AdaBoost algorithm to obtain face area. In the facial area, the Cascading AdaBoost algorithm re-employed to recognize emotions. We compared the performance of the original viola jones and fisher face-based viola jones using 50 images on the State University of Malang dataset by measuring the accuracy and time-consuming in the fps. The accuracy and time-consuming of the Viola-Jones algorithm reach 0.78 and 15 fps, whereas our proposed methods reach 0.82 and 1 fps. It can conclude that the fisher face-based viola-jones algorithm recognizes facial emotion as more accurate than the viola-jones algorithm.
