Ear biometric recognition is used in a lot of applications as person identification in criminal cases, investigation, and security purpose. Feature optimization stage has an important role for accuracy of correct recognition. Gabor filter have a problem of high dimension and high redundancy. Sampling filter is a problem of not reducing features optimum way. In the proposed Gabor feature extraction technique the Gabor features are filtered using proposed mean filter and obtained optimum features for ear biometric dataset.
