© 2014 IEEE. In this piece of work a wrist vein pattern recognition and verification system is proposed. Here the wrist vein images from the PUT database were used, which were acquired in visible spectrum. The vein image only highlights the vein pattern area so, segmentation was not required. Since the wrist's veins are not prominent, image enhancement was performed. An Adaptive Histogram Equalization and Discrete Meyer Wavelet were used to enhance the vessel patterns. For feature extraction, the vein pattern is characterized with Dense Local Binary Pattern (D-LBP). D-LBP patch descriptors of each training image are used to form a bag of features, which was used to produce the training model. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) were used for classification. An encouraging Equal Error Rate (EER) of 0.79% was achieved in our experiments.
