—Current contactless fingertip recognition systems based on three-dimensional finger models mostly use multiple views (N > 2) or structured light illumination with multiple patterns projected over a period of time. In this paper, we present a novel methodology able to obtain a fast and accurate three-dimensional reconstruction of the fingertip by using a(More)
Traditional fingerprint recognition systems require that the users touch a sensor to perform biometric acquisitions. In order to increase the usability, acceptability, and accuracy of fingerprint recognition technologies, touchless systems have recently been studied. With respect to touch-based biometric techniques, these systems present important(More)
–Iris recognition is nowadays considered as one of the most accurate bio-metric recognition techniques. However, the overall performances of such systems can be reduced in non-ideal conditions, such as unconstrained, on-the-move, or non-collaborative setups. In particular, a critical step of the recognition process is the segmentation of the iris pattern in(More)
—Automated Border Control (ABC) systems are technologies designed to increase the speed and accuracy of identity verifications performed at international borders. A great number of ABCs deployed in different countries use fingerprint recognition techniques because of their high accuracy and user acceptability. However, the accuracy of fingerprint(More)
The increasing demand for traveler clearance at international border crossing points (BCPs) has motivated research for finding more efficient solutions. Automated border control (ABC) is emerging as a solution to enhance the convenience of travelers, the throughput of BCPs, and national security. This is the first comprehensive survey on the biometric(More)
