Abstract

In this paper, we present a robust method for 2D ear recognition using color SIFT features. Firstly, we extend the Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) algorithm originally performed on the intensity channel [1] to the RGB color channels to maximize the robustness of the SIFT feature descriptor. Secondly, a feature matching algorithm for ear recognition is proposed by fusion of the features extracted from the different color channels. Experiments conducted on the University of Notre Dame (UND) and the West Virginia University (WVU) ear biometric datasets indicate that our method can achieve better recognition rates than the state-of-the-art methods applied on the same datasets.
