ABSTRACT
This research investigates the comparative performance from three different approaches for multimodal recognition of combined iris and fingerprints: classical sum rule, weighted sum rule, and fuzzy logic method. The scores from the different biometric traits of iris and fingerprint are fused at the matching score and the decision levels. The scores combination approach is used after normalization of both scores using the min-max rule. Our experimental results suggest that the fuzzy logic method for the matching scores combinations at the decision level is the best followed by the classical weighted sum rule and the classical sum rule in order. The performance evaluation of each method is reported in terms of matching time, error rates, and accuracy after doing exhaustive tests on the public CASIA-Iris databases V1 and V2 and the FVC 2004 fingerprint database. Experimental results prior to fusion and after fusion are presented followed by their comparison with related works in the current literature. The fusion by fuzzy logic decision mimics the human reasoning in a soft and simple way and gives enhanced results.

Mentions: In this work, we have implemented two different architectures of the combined iris and fingerprint biometric recognition system in order to compare the recognition results (in terms of time, accuracy, and error rates) of both system architectures and conclude the best one. The first system architecture (see Figure 4) is based on the classical fusion of scores. The second system architecture (see Figure 5) is based on our proposed fuzzy logic matching using iris and fingerprint decisions.
