In many applications such as law enforcement, attendance systems, and medical services, biometrics is utilized for identifying individuals. However, current systems, in general, do not enroll all possible age groups, particularly, toddlers and pre-school children. This research is the first of its kind attempt to prepare a multimodal biometric database for such potential users of biometric systems. In the proposed database, face, fingerprint, and iris modalities of over 100 children (age range of 18 months to 4 years) are captured in two different sessions, months apart. We also perform benchmarking evaluation of existing tools and algorithms to establish the baseline results for different unimodal and multimodal scenarios. Our experience and results suggest that while iris is highly accurate, it requires constant adult supervision to attain cooperation from children. On the other hand, face is the most easy-to-capture modality but yields very low verification performance. We assert that the availability of this database can instigate research in this important research problem. © 2017 IEEE.
