Abstract [en]

This report presents my bachelor thesis performed at the Department of Applied Physics and Electronics at UmeåUniversity. The Digital Media Lab was the assigner, supervising and assisting me during the project.


A simple and smart system to verify a person’s identity using hand geometry as a biometrical identity is developed. The system should tolerate some deviation in hand placement and will not use pins or pegs. A complete system, hardware and software, is delivered. A webcam based hand-scanner is constructed and designed to operate on a PC utilizing Matlab for image processing.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport beskriver mitt examensarbete utfört vid institutionen för Tillämpad Fysik och Elektronik vid Umeå Universitet. Uppdragsgivare var Digital Media Lab som har stöttat och assisterat mig under hela projektet.


Målet med projektet var att utveckla ett system som ska verifiera en persons identitet genom att använda handens geometri som en biometrisk identitet. Systemet skall tolerera några avvikelser i handplaceringar och kommer inte att använda stift eller pinnar. Systemet består även av olika bildbehandlingsmetoder programmerade i Matlab. Systemet är byggt för att fungera på en PC.
