Score-Based Fusion in Multi-Unit Biometric Recognition System

Abstract:

Article Preview

The performance of biometric systems can be improved by combining multiple units through score level fusion. In this paper, different fusion rules based on match scores are comparatively studied for multi-unit fingerprint recognition. A novel fusion model for multi-unit system is presented first. Based on this model, we analyze the five common score fusion rules: sum, max, min, median and product. Further, we propose a new method: square. Note that the performance of these strategies can complement each other, we introduce the mixed rule: square-sum. We prove that square-sum rule outperforms square and sum rules. The experimental results show good performance of the proposed methods.
