Unimodal biometric recognition is not able to meet the performance requirements in most cases with its application becomes more and more broadly. Recognition based on multimodal biometrics represents an emerging trend recently. In the paper, the authors propose multimodal biometrics recognition based on score level fusion of fingerprint and finger vein, since fingerprint recognition and finger vein recognition are complementary in several aspects. Experimental results based on homologous biometrics database demonstrate that the fusion of fingerprint and finger vein leads to a dramatically improvement in performance.
