This paper proposes a hand-shape biometric device with two sensors, respectively working in the visible and 1470-nm bands. The inclusion of the 1470-nm band sensor is to improve both security and performance. The security is improved by including a spoof detector and the performance by combining both bands. The spoof detector combines three skin detection… CONTINUE READING
