MobBIO: A Multimodal Database Captured with a Portable Handheld Device

Abstract

Biometrics represents a return to a natural way of identification: testing someone by what (s)he is, instead of relying on something (s)he owns or knows seems likely to be the way forward. Biometric systems that include multiple sources of information are known as multimodal. Such systems are generally regarded as an alternative to fight a variety of problems all unimodal systems stumble upon. One of the main challenges found in the development of biometric recognition systems is the shortage of publicly available databases acquired under real unconstrained working conditions. Motivated by such need the MobBIO database was created using an Asus EeePad Transformer tablet, with mobile biometric systems in mind. The proposed database is composed by three modalities: iris, face and voice.
