Abstract: The interface of computer technologies and biology is having a huge impact on society. Human recognition technology research projects promises new life to many security consulting firms and personal identification system manufacturers. The physiological or biological features of an individual, called biometrics, are unique to each human and remain unaltered during a person's lifetime and give a promising solution for security management. This paper presents an intelligent multimodal biometric verification system for physical access control, based on fusion of iris, face and fingerprint patterns. Feature vectors are created independently for query images and are then compared with the enrolled templates of each biometric trait to compute the matching score. The final decision is made by fusion at this matching score level. The proposed system is designed to suit embedded solutions for high security access in pervasive environments using biometric features.
