Single modality biometric recognition system is often not able to meet the desired system performance requirements. Several studies have shown that multimodal biometric identification systems improve the recognition accuracy and allow performances that are required for many security applications. In this paper, we have developed a multimodal biometric recognition system which combines two modalities: face and fingerprint. For face trait, we build features based on Gabor Wavelet Networks (GWNs), while Local Binary Patterns (LBP) is used for fingerprint trait. Experimental results affirm that a weighted sum based fusion achieves excellent recognition performances, which out performs both single biometric systems.
