Genetic algorithms (GAs) have recently been accepted as powerful approaches to solving optimization problems. It is also well-accepted that building block construction (schemata formation and conservation) has a positive influence on GA behavior. Schemata are usually indirectly evaluated through a derived structure. We introduce a new approach called the(More)
Processing system of fingerprint are CPU time intensive, being normally implemented in software. This paper present a new algorithm for fingerprint features localization, that can be easily implemented in hardware (system-on-a-chip, FPGA). This algorithm is composed by 3 stages, first stage read a fingerprint image (255x255pixels, ash tones) and apply a(More)
