A new class of biometrics based upon ear features was introduced for use in the development of passive identification. This paper presents an efficient technique for automatic ear detection from side face images. The proposed technique detects human's ear without any training or assumption of prior knowledge about the input image, and it does not need any human intervention so it can be used successfully in a fully automated ear recognition system. Two new features have been proposed for ear… CONTINUE READING
