Bottom Line: The scores combination approach is used after normalization of both scores using the min-max rule.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.

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: Figure 13 presents the graphical user interface allowing the user to verify the similarity between two individuals by opening the fingerprint and iris images belonging to each individual, doing feature extraction, and matching operations between the two irises and the two fingerprints, output the matching distances and the decisions of both modalities and then plot the fuzzy membership function for each decision and finally calculate the decision of the combined modalities and plot its fuzzy membership function.
