This paper presents an investigation into the effects, on the accuracy of multimodal biometrics, of introducing unconstrained cohort normalisation (UCN) into the score-level fusion process. Whilst score normalisation has been widely used in voice biometrics, its effectiveness in other biometrics has not been previously investigated. This study aims to… (More)
A new approach to enhancing the accuracy of multimodal biometrics is investigated. The proposed approach, which involves combining score normalisation and qualitative-based fusion, is shown to considerably improve the accuracy of multimodal biometrics under different data conditions.
