Abstract

This paper presents a method to integrate the multiple impressions of a finger for improving fingerprint verification performance. Small-sized sensor has advantage that it can be used in many application fields. However, sufficiently large impression of fingerprint is not available due to the small sensing area, and this degrades the verification performance of the system. The proposed method overcomes this problem by combining the information of fingerprints for enrollment. To combine the fingerprints, the alignment process is important first of all. In the proposed algorithm, multiple impressions of a finger are coarsely aligned using the corresponding minutiae pairs and then are finely aligned using the Distance Map. We construct an integrated template for enrollment in aligned coordinate system. Since this integrated template represents the enlarged finger region, the problem that is occurred by using small sensor can be overcome. Experimental results show that the use of the integrated template of multiple impressions improves the performance of the fingerprint verification system.
