The right hand image is captured using an IR Recognition Systems HandKey II biometric device. A Matlab program is used to read the top view image of the hand from the RSI to the computer. The size of the image is 20 KB, 660×768 and 2KB for the .log file. The subject is first enrolled into the system using a seven digit random identification number as the pass code. The subject is instructed how to enter his/her random identification number and how to place the hand on the platen, and then the image of the hand is captured six times.
