A group of scientists is developing a new technique that can identify criminals using their hand images. A combination of vein patterns, skin wrinkles, scars, tattoos and pigmentation are used as vital biometrics used to determine an individual.

Research revealed that the project will combine “hard biometrics”, such as fingerprints with “soft biometrics”, for a comprehensive assessment of a person’s true identity.

Professor Deme Sue Black of Lancaster University, leading anatomist and forensic anthropologist said “The hand keeps and shows many anatomical differences of human genetics, development, environment or even accidents so each person’s hands are different.

Now for the first time, researchers will analyze all the factors that make the hand really unique, so that we can understand and use them reliably as evidence of identifying individuals.”

The technique is the first of its kind and has not been tested before, but anatomists, anthropologists, genetics, biologists, photo analysts and computer scientists work together to create the system.

Researchers call it an opportunity to develop a variety of new biological capabilities, and may have many uses in the future, border control and assistance in the investigation of serious crimes organized at the global level.

More than 5,000 national scientists are now employed to create an open source data package for the program. The initiative has received £ 2.2 million in funding the five-year project of Lancaster and Dundee Universities.

It is hoped that the additional funding will allow researchers to obtain more precise imaging and identification of lighting and difficult factors.
