Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new personal authentication system that simultaneously exploits 2D and 3D palmprint features. Here, we aim to improve the accuracy and robustness of existing palmprint authentication systems using 3D palmprint features. The proposed system uses an active stereo technique, structured light, to capture 3D image or range data of the palm and a registered intensity image simultaneously. The surface curvature based method is employed to extract features from 3D palmprint and Gabor feature based competitive coding scheme is used for 2D representation. We individually analyze these representations and attempt to combine them with score level fusion technique. Our experiments on a database of 108 subjects achieve significant improvement in performance (Equal Error Rate) with the integration of 3D features as compared to the case when 2D palmprint features alone are employed.
