Biometric Fingerprint Recognition System
Biometric fingerprint recognition systems use sensors to take an image of someone’s fingerprints and then compare it against pre-scanned ones to verify their identity. Such methods can be employed for access control and security applications in the workplace and two-factor authentication when accessing mobile banking services; some companies even utilize fingerprint scanners so employees don’t have to enter PIN codes when using company computers.
Fingerprints provide unique physical identification that cannot be stolen or duplicated, leaving an imprint of the ridges and valleys on each finger’s surface. Fingerprints may be scanned and stored digitally; however, only specific characteristics (such as minutiae ) that form part of their overall fingerprint pattern will be saved in their entirety.
Minutia-based matches require large amounts of data to store all possible minutia pairs, which will then be analyzed to find the ideal matching candidate and verified to determine whether or not it’s valid. Unfortunately, due to storage limitations and costs, this may not always be a perfect solution; thus, some researchers have tried simplifying this process using techniques such as thinning algorithms and false removal approaches, which reduce the features necessary for matching while improving performance.
High-Definition Video Cameras
Each classroom includes a biometric fingerprint recognition system to provide secure entry, while windows along hallways enable non-intrusive monitoring of activities. Furthermore, teachers and administrators do not release children to unapproved adults; all activity is recorded for your child’s protection.
