biometric systems, human recognition, hand geometry, surface reconstruction
The hand recognition system uses the unique human hand geometry for the person verification. Currently, the only system available in the market, HandKey II, uses only the two-dimensional (2D) contour of the human hand. It works with 16 specifications or dimensions of the parts of the hand. The disadvantage of this system is its low rate of entropy, which limits the final number of users of the access control system that can use it. Therefore, we have decided to extend the current knowledge and do our own research in this field. We have proposed a device and a method for 3D hand recognition system that both use the whole hand surface to gather the biometric properties. The method consists of the image acquisition, image processing, 3D hand geometry reconstruction, template generation and verification/identification. This paper is focused mainly on the first three parts that are described and the results of the hand shape reconstruction are presented.
