Traditional hand geometry based personal verification systems offer limited performance and therefore suitable only for small scale applications. This paper investigates a new approach to achieve performance improvement for hand geometry systems by simultaneously acquiring three dimensional features from the presented hands. The proposed system utilizes a laser based 3D digitizer to acquire registered intensity and range images of the presented hands in a completely contact-free manner, without… CONTINUE READING
