Abstract

The shape of an ear is a unique identifier, which can be used for human recognition. Ears have rich structures; the appearance of ear will not change much between the ages of 8 to 70 and they will not change in the case of face expression. Ear as a biometric has developed rapidly in last decade, comparing with face and fingerprint, ear images can be obtained by simple tools without coordination of subjects and in an unconstrained environment
