Introduction to Palm Vein Bio metrics Project:

In this modern techno savvy world, the chances of an unauthorized access is much higher. Most companies hire security systems that may include normal authentications such as an ID and biometric systems to guarantee authorized access to their premises. Biometric systems uses various anatomical info’s like iris, fingerprint scanning or capture behavioral patterns like handwriting , voice recognition etc. The image pattern of the palm vein captured by the scanner is stored in the database. Palm Vein patterns are unique for every individual as his fingerprint or iris.

Present Biometric System Disadvantages:

In case of fingerprint scanner, it would be impossible to authenticate a person who has lost fingers. If the finger has mud or other external factors in it, then the scanner may not work.Facial recognition system may fail if a human face is subjected to a change in shape, style or size. A person’s voice can also be duped leaving voice authentication systems vulnerable.


• Palm veins are broader in size and its blood vein patterns are complex in structure, this makes it unique for each human being and thereby provides more security while authentication

• Skin characteristics independent

•Is a non-contact technology

The first step in using this technology is to keep one’s palm parallel to the device at some distance. Using Infrared (IR) technology the device then would take a pic of the palm veins with reflection and transmission methods. The sensor in the device generates an image of the pattern of the veins in the palm and stores into a database digitalized and encrypted. For storing image various processes takes place such as binary zing the vein image, detecting the edges of the palm and noting the key points for the curvature of the fingers. Vein extraction is done by 2D Gaussian function .
