• Mobile Fingerprint Recognition

* Objective

  • Fingerprint image acquisition using a built-in camera for mobile devices
  • Touchless fingerprint recognition in mobile environments

* Issue

  • Fingerprint region extraction from images acquired in complex background
  • Image enhancement (non-uniform illumination)
  • Feature extraction from low-resolution images
  • Fast matching algorithm (low computational complexity)
  • Matching robust to pose variation

* Process of touchless fingerprint recognition in mobile environment

* Performance

* Application

  • Phone unlocking
  • - Protecting private data in mobile devices
  • Authentication for E-commerce applications
  • - Protecting users from mobile applications related crimes
