Finger vein recognition is a newly developed and promising biometrics technology. To facilitate evaluation in this area and study state-of-the-art performance of the finger vein recognition algorithms, we organized The ICB-2015 Competition on Finger Vein Recognition (ICFVR2015).
This competition is held on a general recognition algorithm evaluation platform called RATE, with 3 data sets collected from volunteers and actual usage. 7 algorithms were finally submitted, with the best EER achieving 0.375%. This paper will first introduce the organization of the competition and RATE, then describe data sets and test protocols, and finally present results of the competition.
