Abstract: A strong and efficient Feature extraction algorithm is highly recommended for individual recognition in human authentication systems. This paper presents the work carried on palm vein image to extract features of the person vein for recognition and classification using improved canny edge detector. This paper describes a novel method to extract valuable features of the people’s vein pattern and achieving high recognition rate. The experiments carried using two algorithms 1) PCACE (principal component analysis with canny edge) algorithm and 2) LDACE (linear discriminant analysis with canny edge) algorithm. These two methods are analyzed on palm vein image and found LDACE algorithm is a best extractor compare to PCACE method. An Equal Error Rate (EER) is applied to evaluate two algorithms. Hidden Markova Model (HMM) is utilized for image feature classification and matching using contactless Palm Under Test (PUT) palm vein database. The percentage of recognition is measured by False Acceptance Ratio (FAR) and False Rejection Ratio (FRR). This method shows robust response with respect to human palm vein identification process computation time and improved recognition rate.
