CONTRAST ENHANCEMENT AND FEATURE EXTRACTION ALGORITHMS OF

FINGER KNUCLE PRINT IMAGE FOR PERSONAL RECOGNITION

Abstract:
The Finger-Knuckle-Print (FKP) which is defined with its rich texture is becoming a
new challenge to identify persons. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm for personal
recognition including two main steps. Firstly, an enhancement algorithm based on Adaptive
Histogram Equalization (AHE) is considered to improve the contrast of input FKP images.
Secondly, a new algorithm is proposed to extract minutiae from enhanced FKP image.
Simulation results showed that our proposed algorithm performs better than others existing
methods with an FAR close to 0% and FRR (False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and False
Recognition Rate (FRR) ) values ranging from 87.5% to 100%.
