"Fingerprint scanners are being integrated into smaller and more compact devices we use in everyday life," said Dr. Justas Kranauskas, project lead for Neurotechnology. "Now these devices can run our fingerprint recognition algorithms on board, with both accuracy and the smallest possible resource consumption."
FingerCell includes a template extractor, template matcher and template stitching functionality, all optimized to run on embedded CPUs and microcontrollers. The template generator in FingerCell creates either proprietary or ANSI/ISO standard templates. The template stitching algorithm is specially designed for use with small area sensors. It combines multiple fingerprint templates into a single template, which can significantly improve recognition accuracy.
FingerCell 3.0 can be used for both 1:1 matching and 1:many (1:N) identification in embedded applications. It provides fast image processing and feature extraction, is fully tolerant to fingerprint translation and rotation and can recognize a fingerprint from a small portion of it.
On an ARM Cortex-M4 or similar microcontroller, FingerCell can create a fingerprint template in 650 milliseconds (ms) from a 234x332 pixel 500 dpi image and it can match two fingerprint templates in less than four ms.
FingerCell SDK can be provided as source code or as a static library package. The static library can be compiled for the required platform, which can be with or without an operating system. On request, Neurotechnology can provide a sample hardware evaluation kit with the preinstalled FingerCell algorithm.
FingerCell 3.0 is available now from Neurotechnology or from distributors worldwide. For more information, go to: www.neurotechnology.com.
Neurotechnology is a provider of high-precision software and development products for biometric fingerprint, face, iris, palmprint and voice identification; object recognition; AI and robotics. Drawing from years of academic research in the fields of neuroinformatics, image processing and pattern recognition, Neurotechnology was founded in 1990 in Vilnius, Lithuania and released its first fingerprint identification system in 1991. Since that time the company has released more than 130 products and version upgrades for identification and verification of objects and personal identity. More than 3000 system integrators, security companies and hardware providers integrate Neurotechnology's algorithms into their products, with millions of customer installations worldwide.
