Paper Abstract

Biometric sensor interoperability refers to the ability of a system to compensate for the variability introduced in the biometric data of an individual due to the deployment of different sensors. We demonstrate that a simple non-linear calibration scheme, based on Thin Plate Splines (TPS), is sufficient to facilitate sensor interoperability in the context of fingerprints. In the proposed technique, the variation between the images acquired using two different sensors is modeled using non-linear distortions. Experiments indicate that the proposed calibration scheme can significantly improve inter-sensor matching performance.
