A face recognition system has been designed, which requires no interaction at all. The system detects persons, defines whether the persons are known already or not, and either updates the existing database of known persons, or establishes a new database if a new person is detected.

Born in Germany in 1959, Professor Rothermel received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Dortmund, and the Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.) degree from the University of Duisburg, both Germany, in 1984 and 1989, respectively.? From 1985 to 1989, with the Fraunhofer Institute of Microelectronic Circuits and Systems, Duisburg, Professor Rothermel worked on integrated digital CMOS and BICMOS circuits, especially for high-speed applications. From 1990 to 1993, with THOMSON multimedia, Corporate Research, Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany, Professor Rothermel worked on digital signal processing concepts for present and future TV and HDTV sets. Professor Rothermel managed work package 1 in the European JESSI project AE 10 for HDTV receiver IC design. As manager of the IC design laboratory, he was involved in analog and mixed circuit design for audio and video applications.

Since 1994, Professor Rothermel is with the Institute of Microelectronics, University of Ulm, as a Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interests include analog circuits for digital signal processing (such as PLL’s and data transmission) and digital signal processing for TV applications (such as digital IF processing, demodulation, sync extraction and rate conversion). Today, the focus is on video signal processing for multimedia systems and mobile applications (video coding and DVB-T processing). In 2002, he was a co-founder of the Competence Center for Automotive Electronics and Information Systems.? In 1997, he was on leave at THOMSON multimedia headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana, contributing to the architectures of second generation US digital TVs. In 2002/03, he was a visiting professor at the Edith Cowan University in Perth, Western Australia.
