Executive Summary

For the purpose of biometric applications, the authors explore in this paper a new robust approach to characterizing palmprint features. Instead of processing the acquired image in the spatial domain, the proposed technique extracts palmprint features using Radon transform and a geometric Delaunay triangulation jointly. In such a process, Radon transform enables the extraction of directional characteristics from the palm of the hand. Afterwards, the most significant information is structured using Delaunay triangulation, thus providing a specific palmprint signature. In order to compare the uniqueness as well as the stability of the palmprint signature, Hausdorff distance has been used as a criterion of similarity.
