Abstract – The design will improve scalability, accessibility and flexibility. This target can be mainly decomposed into image pre-processing, feature extraction and feature match. My demonstration program is coded by MATLAB. For the program, some optimization at coding level and algorithm level are proposed to improve the performance of my fingerprint recognition system. For each sub -task, some classical and up-to-date methods in literatures are analyzed. A pre-processing method consisting of field orientation, ridge frequency estimation, Gabor filtering, feature extraction and enhancement is performed. The objective of this project is to present a better and enhanced fingerprint image.
