Numerical simulations were performed using super-resolution images and barrel-distorted images to improve the viability of the authors' previous work regarding single-view-based ear biometrics. Empirical demonstrations show that, using barrel-distorted images and super-resolution images, accuracy decreases. However, our present proposed method for model normal vector creation applied to these images compensated for losses in accuracy. Furthermore, an experimental investigation of the influence
