Abstract

We present and experimentally demonstrate the potential effectiveness of a photometric stereo based high resolution system for capturing 3D handprints using visible light sources. The sub-surface vascular structures are also enhanced through the use of near-infrared light sources which offers a potentially useful technique to increase system security. In contrast to existing systems which locate specific minutiae features of a fingerprint, we propose to use a global/holistic approach based on the spatial frequencies of the handprint, and preliminary results on 11 subjects show the high potential of this approach for contactless biometric identification purposes
