Feature extraction for an optimal data representation is crucial for any biometric identification system. In this paper, we propose a new approach to extract the discriminant features within a biometric image in order to use Later in a biometric identification system. Thus, qualified as universal approximator, Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy system is adopted to model the biometric images through optimization of error target function, in which, a conjugate gradient method is used to establish the proposed algorithm. In order to evaluate our method, the PolyU multispectral palmprint database is used. The obtained results show that the biometric system errors are extremely reduced especially when the Blue spectral band is used. Thus, compared with the conventional features extraction methods, our method is more secure, fast and points at increased identification accuracy which will undoubtedly can be used in high secure applications.
