A Collaborative Approach using Ridge-Valley Minutiae for More Accurate Contactless Fingerprint Identification

  title={A Collaborative Approach using Ridge-Valley Minutiae for More Accurate Contactless Fingerprint Identification},
  author={Ritesh Vyas and Ajay Kumar},
Contactless fingerprint identification has emerged as an reliable and user friendly alternative for the personal identification in a range of e-business and law-enforcement applications. It is however quite known from the literature that the contactless fingerprint images deliver remarkably low matching accuracies as compared with those obtained from the contact-based fingerprint sensors. This paper develops a new approach to significantly improve contactless fingerprint matching capabilities… Expand
