Fingerprint Identification Project 2
I. Introduction
Fingerprints are imprints formed by friction ridges of the skin and thumbs. They
have long been used for identification because of their immutability and individuality.
Immutability refers to the permanent and unchanging character of the pattern on each
finger. Individuality refers to the uniqueness of ridge details across individuals; the
probability that two fingerprints are alike is about 1 in 1.9x1015
.
However, manual fingerprint verification is so tedious, time consuming and expensive that
is incapable of meeting today's increasing performance requirements. An automatic
fingerprint identification system is widely adopted in many applications such as building or
area security and ATM machines [1-2].
Two approaches will be described in this project for fingerprint recognition:
Approach 1: Based on minutiae located in a fingerprint
Approach 2: Based on frequency content and ridge orientation of a fingerprint
II. First Approach
