Human Ear Pattern Recognition System

V. Jagan Naveen, K. Krishna Kishore, P. Rajesh Kumar


In the modern world, human recognition systems play an important role to   improve security by reducing chances of evasion. Human ear is used for person identification .In the Empirical study on research on human ear, 10000 images are taken to find the uniqueness of the ear. Ear based system is one of the few biometric systems which can provides stable characteristics over the age. In this paper, ear images are taken from mathematical analysis of images (AMI) ear data base and the analysis is done on ear pattern recognition based on the Expectation maximization algorithm and k means algorithm.  Pattern of ears affected with different types of noises are recognized based on Principle component analysis (PCA) algorithm.
