An approach to hand biometrics in mobile devices

Descripción (resumen): 

This paper focuses on hand biometrics applied to images acquired from a mobile device. The system offers the possibility of identifying individuals based on features extracted from hand pictures obtained with a low-quality camera embedded on a mobile device. Furthermore, the acquisitions have been carried out regardless illumination control, orientation, distance to camera, and similar aspects. In addition, the whole system has been tested with an owned database. Finally, the results obtained (6.0% ± 0.2) and the algorithm structure are both promising in relation to a posterior mobile implementation.
