Ear biometric verification approach based on morphological and geometric invariants

Wurood A. Jbara


Biometric verification based on ear features is modern filed for scientific research. As known, there are many biometric identifiers that can identify people such as fingerprints, iris and speech. In this paper, the focus is placed on the ear biometric model in order to verifying the identity of persons. The main idea is based on used the moments as ear feature extractors. The proposed approach included some operations as follow: image capturing, edge detection, erosion, feature extraction, and matching. The proposed approach has been tested using many images of the ears with different states. Experimental results using several trails verified that the proposed approach is achieved high accuracy level over a wide variety of ear images. Also, the verification process will be completed by matching query ear image with ear images that kept in database during real time.
