Person Identification Technique Using RGB Based Dental Images
Dental signature captures information about teeth, including tooth contours, relative positions of neighboring teeth, and shapes of the dental work. However, this is complicated as dental features change with time. In this paper, we proposed a new, safe and low cost dental biometric technique based on RGBimages. It uses three phases: image acquisition with noise removal, segmentation and feature extraction. The key issue that makes our approach distinct is that the features are extracted mainly from incisor teeth only. Thus the proposed solution is low cost besides being safe for human.
