Regarding the palms recognition system studies, despite achieving a high success rate, hygiene problems in systems with contact and problems arising from changes in the alignment of the hand pose in non-contact ones have been encountered. To resolve these problems, 3D palmprint recognition systems have been developed, however these systems have not had the opportunity to spread due to expensive technologies used as well as low screening rates. In this study, to calculate the position and orientation of a palm in 3D space, a stereo camera system is proposed, with the help of these values by adjusting the geometric image of the palm is converted to a 2D environment. From these images, patterns used for recognition are extracted by using Active Appearance Models. Thus a non-contact system has been achieved, but also patterns that can be used by powerful 2D recognition systems have also been produced.
