In this paper a feature vector, which has been used for curve coding, is evaluated in case of a signature verification scheme using a real time digital signal processor. The feature extraction method is based on morphologically processing the vertical projections of prescaled signature images. Coding of the curve profiles is carried out using morphological opening which explores the pixel allocation along the directions of projection. Various lengths for the structuring element are employed to… Expand

Computer Detection of Freehand Forgeries
The detection of freehand forgeries of signatures on bank checks makes use of size ratio and slant features derived from Eden's kinematic stroke model for handwriting, which was modified to make it applicable to prewritten material. Expand
Nonlinear shape normalization methods for the recognition of large-set handwritten characters
These methods are reviewed from the two points of view: feature projection and feature density equalization and a systematic comparison of them has been made based on the following criteria: recognition rate, processing speed, computational complexity and degree of variation. Expand
