Segmentation of Latent Fingerprint using Neural Network

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Latent fingerprints are the fingerprints that are left by the criminal unintentionally on the surface of the crime scene. The qualities of the latent fingerprints are very poor due to the overlapping patterns and structured noises. Latent fingerprint segmentation is a difficult task due to low visibility, structured noise, and complex structure. In this paper, a fusion of morphological and neural network approach is purposed for latent fingerprint segmentation. This method automatically

Fingerprint region then divides into y*y blocks and extracts the features of each block and uses them as an input of NN to classify the blocks into fingerprint and non-fingerprint blocks. We are using the IIIT-D database and the shows that this model batters then the existing model.
