BRIOP: Blood Relation Identification Using Offline Palmprints

Anand Gupta, Milan Sachdeva, Ujjwal Garg

Full text: PDF


Biometrics is an automated approach of measuring and analysing physical and behavioural characteristics for identity verification. Palmprint is one of the utilitarian traits of biometrics. There are scads of work done in the area of palmprint technology. But, to the best of our knowledge no work has been done to trace the family members of a particular person using offline palmprints. This can be utilised when a new criminal comes under the custody of law, his investigation might need the information of the family members who are already indulged in criminal activities. In this paper, the above application is implemented by extracting texture features from the offline palmprint and then classifying them into desired family and non-family clusters. Moreover, this approach, called BRIOP, has also been compared with prior works related to classification and clustering of data. The accuracy of the used approach is discussed using FAR and FRR graphs.
