This paper presents a novel approach for palmprint recognition based on the valley features. This approach uses the bothat operation to extract the valleys from a very low-resolution palm image in different directions to form the valley feature, and then define a matching score to measure the similarity of the valley features. The experimental results shows that the proposed approach can effectively discriminate palmprints and can obtain about 98% accuracy in palmprint verification.
