A highly-verified biometric recognition system using an ultra-speed specifically-developed finger vein sensor

Khamis A. Zidan, Shereen S. Jumaa


Currently, Biometrics has been utilized the top five modality of face, voice, IRIs, fingerprint, and palm to identify individuals. Comparatively, these Biometrics systems need complex computation to be slow and an easy target to hack. Alternatively, this work proposes a novel biometrics system of highly secured recognition with low computation time using specifically designed biometrics sensor. Consequently, finger vein recognition has been developed. Although, this recognition requires high point of safety measures comes with its individual experiments. The most prominent one being the vein pattern is very difficult to extract because finger vein images are constantly low in quality, seriously hampering the feature extraction and classification stages. Sophisticated algorithms need to be designed with the conventional hardware for capturing finger-vein images is modified by using red Surface Mounted Diode (SMD) leds. For capturing images, Canon 750D camera is used with micro lens. The integrated micro lens gives better quality images, and with some adjustments it can also capture finger print. Results have been comparatively improvement for SDUMLA-HMT database and extensively evaluated with k-nearest neighbors (KNN) algorithm. The (KNN) algorithm is a simple, easy-to-implement supervised machine learning algorithm that can be used to solve both classification and regression problems. KNN calculations are highly accurate in test data. Using stratified 6- fold analysis on all fingers of all hands in collected database, a maximum accuracy of 100% was achieved with an EER of 0% when select right hand and middle finger, based on the analysis of the 106 persons present in the data set. Many approaches have been used to optimize vein image quality. The proposed system has optimum results as compared to existing related works. The work novelty is due to the hardware design of the sensor within the finger-vein recognition system to obtain, simultaneously, finger vein and finger print at low cost, unlimited users for one device and open source.
