The Automated fingerprint identification System (AFIS) is
to reproduce a biometric system that is primarily software dependent
Fingerprint Detector Requirements
The project should capture a person's fingerprint
pattern via a scan pad or scanner and store it in some sort of
The project should map the fingerprint image to the
owner along with any pertinent information (ie. his or her name).
The project should also be able to retrieve the
recorded information from an individual already in the database simply
by imputing his or her fingerprint image/pattern again.
It should give the option of zooming out and in on the
It should be able to print the fingerprint image.
Method of Completion
Filtering of Fingerprint Image
Feature Extraction of Fingerprint Image
Neural Network Algorithm
The outcome of this project can be used in our government
by the police, FBI, border patrol, and military. Fingerprint
detectors are useful in detecting certain individuals who could be
criminals or missing. In our case it will only be used to
detect people by their fingerprint.
Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems are used to
lock important information in the computer from certain
This detection can also replace barcodes where it is
use in detect certain persons which are allowed to enter in a

A biometric system for fingerprint identification is the
most widely used and accepted on identification technique. The
automation of such system as ours is sometimes hardware or software
dependent. Our goal is to implement an AFIS that requires no
specialized hardware or technical services (in electronics), but maintains
the same efficiency as those on the market in software.
