Abstract: As processing power becomes cheaper and more available by using cluster of computers, the need for parallel algorithms which can harness this computing potentials is increasing. Eye detection is an application ofparallel algorithms. Detecting eyes in images plays an important role in many applications such as face detection/recognition. In addition, its widespread usage as a part of series applications made it a nontrivial task which should be worked on. Moreover, existing algorithms are usually much time-consuming. In this paper we have proposed a parallel algorithm in EREW PRAM model for eye detection in color images. Using color characteristics is a useful way to detect b r eyes. We use special color space, YC C which its components give us worthwhile information about eyes. We make two maps in parallel according to their components and merge them to obtain a final map. The proposed algorithm has been examined with MPI and its implementation results on CVL and Iranian databases showed that parallel approach reduces the time of detection efficiently. Exploiting p processors has reduced the time of detection to n/p + c which c is the communication overhead between the processors and n is the number of pixels of a particular image.
