To solve the problems associated with conventional 2-D fingerprint scanners such as skin deformation and print smearing, in this paper we introduce a noncontact fingerprint scanner employing structured light illumination to generate high-resolution albedo images as well as 3-D ridge scans. The question to be answered in this research is whether or not ridge depth information improves the quality and matching capability of acquired fingerprints? For evaluation of this question, we use the… CONTINUE READING
