Paper Abstract

In this paper, a method to enhance the fingerprint image by using Log-Gabor filters is proposed. Firstly, a filter for extracting fingerprint image texture feature is designed. Then, the high frequency components of fingerprint image are extracted by filtering. Finally, the fingerprint image details can be improved by enhancing high frequency components. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can effectively improve the quality of fingerprint image and the reliability of fingerprint identification.
