A new approach for the personal identification using hand images is presented. This paper attempts to improve the performance of palmprint-based verification system by integrating hand geometry features. Unlike other bimodal biometric systems, the users do not have to undergo the inconvenience of using two different sensors since the palmprint and hand(More)
Major frontal lobe tracts and corpus callosum (CC) were investigated in 32 children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD, mean age: 5 years), 12 nonautistic developmentally impaired children (DI, mean age: 4.6 years), and 16 typically developing children (TD, mean age: 5.5 years) using diffusion tensor imaging tractography and tract-based spatial statistics.(More)
This paper investigates a new approach for personal authentication using fingerback surface imaging. The texture pattern produced by the finger knuckle bending is highly unique and makes the surface a distinctive biometric identifier. The finger geometry features can be simultaneously acquired from the same image at the same time and integrated to further(More)
To investigate frontal lobe white matter in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), we performed diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in 50 ASD children (mean age: 57.5 +/- 29.2 months, 43 males) and 16 typically developing children (mean age: 82.1 +/- 41.4 months, 11 males). The apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) was significantly higher for whole(More)
This paper proposes a new bimodal biometric system using feature-level fusion of hand shape and palm texture. The proposed combination is of significance since both the palmprint and hand-shape images are proposed to be extracted from the single hand image acquired from a digital camera. Several new hand-shape features that can be used to represent the hand(More)
This paper presents a new approach to authenticate individuals using triangulation of hand vein images and simultaneous extraction of knuckle shape information. The proposed method is fully automated and employs palm dorsal hand vein images acquired from the low-cost, near infrared, contactless imaging. The knuckle tips are used as key points for the image(More)
This paper presents a new approach for personal authentication using hand images. The proposed method attempts to improve the performance of palmprint-based verification system by integrating hand geometry features. Unlike prior bimodal biometric systems, the users do not have to undergo the inconvenience of using two different sensors in our system since(More)
The personal identification approaches using iris images are receiving increasing attention in the biometrics literature. Several methods have been presented in the literature and those based on the phase encoding of texture information are suggested to be the most promising. However, there has not been any attempt to combine these approaches to achieve(More)
This paper presents a new evolutionary approach for adaptive combination of multiple biometrics to ensure the optimal performance for the desired level of security. The adaptive combination of multiple biometrics is employed to determine the optimal fusion strategy and the corresponding fusion parameters. The score-level fusion rules are adapted to ensure(More)
