A Bimodal Palmprint Verification System
Hand-based biometrics such as fingerprint and palmprint had been widely accepted because of their convenience and ease in usage without intruding much to one’s privacy such as face. The aim of this work is to develop a new point-based algorithm for palmprint feature extraction and perform reliable verification based on the extracted features. This point-based recognition system is next used as part of a bimodal palmprint recognition system combining with a DCT-based (Discrete Cosine Transform) algorithm for identity verification. The performance of the integrated system is evaluated using physical palmprint images.
