Jaafar H, Ibrahim S, Ramli DA - Comput Intell Neurosci (2015)

Bottom Line: To accelerate the recognition process, a new classifier, improved fuzzy-based k nearest centroid neighbor (IFkNCN), was implemented.By removing outliers and reducing the amount of training data, this classifier exhibited faster computation.Our experimental results demonstrate that a touchless palm print system using LHEAT and IFkNCN achieves a promising recognition rate of 98.64%.

ABSTRACT
Mobile implementation is a current trend in biometric design. This paper proposes a new approach to palm print recognition, in which smart phones are used to capture palm print images at a distance. A touchless system was developed because of public demand for privacy and sanitation. Robust hand tracking, image enhancement, and fast computation processing algorithms are required for effective touchless and mobile-based recognition. In this project, hand tracking and the region of interest (ROI) extraction method were discussed. A sliding neighborhood operation with local histogram equalization, followed by a local adaptive thresholding or LHEAT approach, was proposed in the image enhancement stage to manage low-quality palm print images. To accelerate the recognition process, a new classifier, improved fuzzy-based k nearest centroid neighbor (IFkNCN), was implemented. By removing outliers and reducing the amount of training data, this classifier exhibited faster computation. Our experimental results demonstrate that a touchless palm print system using LHEAT and IFkNCN achieves a promising recognition rate of 98.64%.

Mentions: Because the image was captured without pegs or guiding bars, the palm print alignment varied in each collection. This variation caused the palm print image to be affected by rotation and may hamper accurate recognition. Therefore, the local minima and local maxima methods were used to detect peaks and valleys [29]. As shown in Figure 7, the peak and valley points in the hand boundary image were sorted and named before ROI segmentation.
