Orientation field plays an important role in fingerprint recognition system. This paper proposes a method for estimating four-direction orientation field. It consists of four steps: (i) preprocessing fingerprint image, (ii) determining the primary ridge of fingerprint block using neuron pulses of pulse coupled neural network (PCNN), (iii) estimating block direction by projective distance variance of such a ridge, instead of a full block and (iv) correcting the estimated orientation field… CONTINUE READING
