The performance of a face recognition system is negatively affected by the accessories used on the face Like many methods, the recognition performance of the Common Vector Approach (CVA) [1] over occluded images is not at the desired level. In this work, we proposed an extension of the CVA, namely the Modular Common Vector Approach (M-CVA), which improves the recognition performance at the occluded face images. M-CVA outperforms CVA by a margin of 82,7 percent in the experiments which are conducted over AR face database.
