New Mobile Phone and Webcam Hand Images Databases for Personal Authentication and Identification

What We Do

In this work we created two hand image databases, using Mobile phone cameras, and webcams. The major goal of those databases is to build upon person’s authentication/identification using hand biometrics, decreasing the need for expensive hand scanners.
Both databases consists of 3000 hand images, 3 sessions x 5 images per person x 200 persons, and are available to freely download. The test protocol is defined for both databases; simple experiments were conducted using the same protocol.




This work attempts to provide two Hand Images Databases for hand biometrics:
one is created using a mobile phone camera of modest quality, which we called mobile hand images database (MOHI),
and the other is created using a webcam with low quality images, which we called webcam hand images database (WEHI).
