Biometric recognition is becoming more and more important owing to the need for authentication in several fields like security or convenience applications. In this paper, a new imaging capturing technique based on near-infrared illumination [1] to acquire wrist vein pattern images for biometric purposes is analysed. Experiments and tests involving data acquisition in different illumination conditions are described using a population of 30 test subjects. Comparison and analysis of the data… CONTINUE READING
