Student Attendance System Based on Fingerprint Recognition and One to Many Matching

Mishra, Rishabh and Trivedi, Prashant (2011) Student Attendance System Based on Fingerprint Recognition and One to Many Matching. BTech thesis.



Our project aims at designing an student attendance system which could effectively manage attendance of students at institutes like NIT Rourkela. Attendance is marked after student identification. For student identification, a fingerprint recognition based identification system is used. Fingerprints are considered to be the best and fastest
method for biometric identification. They are secure to use, unique for every person and does not change in one's lifetime. Fingerprint recognition is a mature field today, but still identifying individual from a set of enrolled fingerprints is a time taking process. It was our responsibility to improve the fingerprint identification system for implementation on large databases e.g. of an institute or a country etc. In this project, many new algorithms have been used e.g. gender estimation, key based one to many matching, removing boundary minutiae. Using these new algorithms, we have developed an identification system which is faster in implementation than any other
available today in the market. Although we are using this fingerprint identification system for student identification purpose in our project, the matching results are so good that it could perform very well on large databases like that of a country like India (MNIC Project).
This system was implemented in Matlab10, Intel Core2Duo processor and comparison of our one to many identification was done with existing identification technique i.e.
one to one identification on same platform. Our matching technique runs in O(n+N) time as compared to the existing O(Nn^2). The fingerprint identification system was tested on FVC2004 and Verifinger databases.
