In this paper, a simple and computationally efficient approach is proposed for person independent facial emotion recognition. The proposed approach is based on the significant features of an image, i.e., the collection of few largest eigenvalues (LE). Further, a Levenberg–Marquardt algorithm-based neural network (LMNN) is applied for multiclass emotions classification. This leads to a new facial emotion recognition approach (LE-LMNN) which is systematically examined on JAFFE and Cohn–Kanade databases. Experimental results illustrate that the LE-LMNN approach is effective and computationally efficient for facial emotion recognition. The robustness of the proposed approach is also tested on low-resolution facial emotion images.The performance of the proposed approach is found to be superior as compared to the various existing methods.
