Pattern Recognition Algorithms for Ear Biometrics
This paper presents geometrical Parameter algorithms for ear Biometrics by representing the Ear image as contours, feature extraction and recognition. The proposed algorithms were developed for ear biometrics, but they can be applied in other contour image processing applications. Firstly it presents mathematical and algorithmic foundations of geometrical feature extraction methods. It also discusses their application and the achieved results for ear contour image analysis and recognition. The human ear is a perfect source of data for passive person identification in many applications.
