Biometrics offers greater security and convenience than traditional methods of person authentication. Multi biometrics has recently emerged as a means of more robust and efficient person authentication scheme. Exploiting information from multiple biometric features improves the performance and also robustness of person authentication. The objective of this paper is to develop a robust bimodal biometric person authentication system using speech and signature biometric features. Speaker based unimodal system is developed by extracting Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) and Wavelet Octave Coefficients of Residues (WOCOR) as feature vectors. The MFCCs and WOCORs from the training data are modeled using Vector Quantization (VQ) and Gaussian Mixture Modeling (GMM) techniques. Signature based unimodal system is developed by using Vertical Projection Profile (VPP), Horizontal Projection Profile (HPP) and Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) as features. A bimodal biometric person authentication system is then built using these two unimodal systems. Experimental results show that the bimodal person authentication system provides higher performance compared with the unimodal systems. The bimodal system is finally evaluated for its robustness using the noisy data and also data collected from the real environments. The robustness of the bimodal system is more compared to the unimodal person authentication systems.
