Abstract

Recently, biometric palmprint has received wide attention from researchers. It is well-known for several advantages such as stable line features, low-resolution imaging, low-cost capturing device, and user-friendly. In this paper, an automated scanner-based palmprint recognition system is proposed. The system automatically captures and aligns the palmprint images for further processing. Several linear subspace projection techniques have been tested and compared. In specific, we focus on principal component analysis (PCA), fisher discriminant analysis (FDA) and independent component analysis (ICA). In order to analyze the palmprint images in multi-resolution-multi-frequency representation, wavelet transformation is also adopted. The images are decomposed into different frequency subbands and the best performing subband is selected for further processing. Experimental result shows that application of FDA on wavelet subband is able to yield both FAR and FRR as low as 1.356 and 1.492% using our palmprint database.
