Dealing With Sensor Interoperability in Multi-Biometrics: The UPM Experience at the Biosecure Multimodal
Source: Universidad Autonoma de Madrid
Multimodal biometric systems allow to overcome some of the problems presented in unimodal systems, such as non-universality, lack of distinctiveness of the unimodal trait, noise in the acquired data, etc. Integration at the matching score level is the most common approach used due to the ease in combining the scores generated by different unimodal systems. Unfortunately, scores usually lie in application-dependent domains. In this paper, the authors use linear logistic regression fusion, in which fused scores tend to be calibrated log-likelihood-ratios and thus, independent of the application.
