Quality-based Score Level Fusion in Multibiometric Systems
The quality of biometric samples has a significant impact on the accuracy of a matcher. Poor quality biometric samples often lead to incorrect matching results because the features extracted from these samples are not reliable. Therefore, dynamically assigning weights to the outputs of individual matchers based on the quality of the samples presented at the input of the matchers can improve the overall recognition performance of a multibiometric system. We propose a likelihood ratio-based fusion scheme that takes into account the quality of the biometric samples while combining the match scores provided by the matchers. Instead of estimating the quality of the template and query images individually, we estimate a single quality metric for each template-query pair based on the local image quality measures. Experiments on a database of 320 users with iris and fingerprint modalities demonstrate the advantages of utilizing the quality information in multibiometric systems.
