Hough Transform Based Fingerprint Matching Using Minutiae Extraction

Nitika Saroha, Nasib Singh Gill


Fingerprints are the most widely used biometric feature for identification and verification in the field of biometrics. This paper is focused on developing a system for recognizing two fingerprints using minutiae matching and Hough transform. Fingerprint matching is the process of comparing a fingerprint against another fingerprint to determine if the impressions are from the same finger. The paper proposes a new scheme to improve the accuracy of fingerprint recognition. Fingerprint Matching using minutiae extraction includes The matching using displacement and the rotation. The Hough transform is introduced to include the scaling. This proposed scheme matches the fingerprint by using Hough transform and the minutiae matching.
