Abstract: In any computer vision application, integration of relevant feature extraction module is vital to help in making accurate decision of the classification. In the literature, several methods that have achieved promising results and high accuracies are based on texture analysis. Thus, there exist various feature extraction techniques to describe the texture information, among them; the local binary pattern (LBP) is widely used to characterise the image sufficiently. Generally, LBP descriptor and their variants are applied on greyscale images. Thus, in this paper, we propose a new method that can be applied to any type of image either in greyscale, colour, multispectral or hyperspectral. It is a new scheme of 3D local binary pattern. We have developed biometric system for person identification and an edge detection technique to evaluate it. The obtained results have showed that it has higher performances compared to other methods developed in the literature in terms of identification rates.

Keywords: feature extraction; local binary pattern; LBP; biometrics; person identification; palmprint; data fusion.
