Abstract: As an emerging biometric technology, palmprint recognition technology has been researched widely and developed rapidly, which is well known for its high verification accuracy, low-price capture device, high reliability and user acceptance. During this instance of time, several different glitches related to palmprint recognition have been addressed. Furthermost of the studies has been done in palmprint recognition due to its stability, reliability and exclusivity. Furthermore, it has been used for law enforcement, civil applications and access control applications. Researchers have proposed a variety of palmprint pre-processing, feature extraction and matching approaches. This paper deliberates and review about the number of investigation works introduced to overcome the difficulties confronted in each stage of palm print verification. Our study on palm print recognition focuses on verifying the palm print in different types of schemes involved.
