Abstract: This paper highlights automatic pain expression recognition from facial images of pain. This technique is frequently used in healthcare applications. The research detects the pain expression by an effective recognition method. It is based on the concepts of fusion of contourlet transform with Gabor transform for feature extraction, and classification of expressions by using SVM. The ABC algorithm and GA is implemented for optimizing SVM parameters. In order to authenticate the precision and stoutness of the system, a number of experiments have been done on two databases namely UNBC shoulder pain database and IFD-CEERI database. It’s provided throughout the simulation techniques. The suggested strategy is actually effective in recognition of pain expression in terms of accuracy.
