Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to provide a comparative study between different cepstral features for the application of human recognition using heart sounds. In the past 10 years, heart sound, which is known as phonocardiogram, has been adopted for human biometric authentication tasks. Most of the previously proposed systems have adopted mel-frequency and linear frequency cepstral coefficients as features for heart sounds. In this paper, two more cepstral features are proposed. The first one is based on wavelet packet decomposition where a new filter bank structure is designed to select the appropriate bases for extracting discriminant features from heart sounds. The other is based on nonlinear modification for mel-scaled cepstral features. The four cepstral features are tested and compared on two databases: One consists of 21 subjects, and the other consists of 206 subjects. Based on the achieved results over the two databases, the two proposed cepstral features achieved higher correct recognition rates and lower error rates in identification and verification modes, respectively.
