Paper Abstract

The manner of holding a pen is distinctive among people. Therefore, pen holding style is useful for person authentication. In this paper, we propose a biometric person authentication method using features extracted from images of pen holding style. Images of the pen holding style are captured by a camera, and several features are extracted from the captured images. These features are compared with a reference dataset to calculate dissimilarity scores, and these scores are combined for verification using a three-layer perceptron. Preliminary experiments were performed by using a private database. The proposed system yielded an equal error rate (EER) of 2.6%.
