Collaborative representation with HM-LBP features for palmprint recognition

Original Paper


A novel collaborative representation model with hierarchical multiscale local binary pattern (HM-LBP) for palmprint recognition is proposed in this paper. HM-LBP can retrieve useful information from non-uniform patterns and reduce the influence of gray scale, rotation and illumination. The HM-LBP feature of palmprint is extracted, and its dimension is reduced by principal component analysis. And then, a collaborative classification with HM-LBP is presented to fully exploit the discrimination information. The proposed algorithm is evaluated on the Hong Kong Polytechnic University database (v2) to test its feasibility and performance. The results show that the algorithm can achieve ideal recognition accuracy of 100% and the speediness is able to fit for the real-time palmprint recognition system.
