Fingerprint Recognition Using Local Features
Keywords:AFIS, FFT, gabor filters, minutiae, recognition
Fingerprint recognition is one of the most popular methods used for identification with greater degree of success. The fingerprint has unique characteristics called minutiae, which are points where a curve track finishes, intersect or branches off. Identification systems using fingerprints biometric patterns are called AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification System). In this work a method for Fingerprint recognition is considered using a combination of Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Gabor Filters for image enhancement and later a novel method of recognition using local features.
