Hierarchical fusion for matching simultaneous latent fingerprint
Published in
Pages: 377 - 382
Simultaneous latent fingerprints are a cluster of latent fingerprints that are concurrently deposited by the same person. Inherent challenges of latent fingerprints such as partial and smudgy ridge flow information, presence of background noise, and availability of less number of features makes it challenging to develop an automated system for simultaneous latent fingerprint matching. This research attempts to fill this gap by developing a fusion framework. The contribution of this paper is two-fold: (i) an automated hierarchical fusion approach is proposed for fusing evidences from multiple latent impressions and (ii) IIITD simultaneous latent fingerprint database is prepared to drive further research in this area. The proposed algorithm yields promising results on the simultaneous latent fingerprint database. © 2012 IEEE.
