Abstract

This paper explores the biomeric identification and verification of human subjects via fingerprints utilising an adaptive FPGA-based weightless neural networks. The exploration espoused here is a hardware-based system motivated by the need for accurate and rapid response to identification of fingerprints which may be lacking in other alternative systems such as software based neural networks. The fingerprints are pre-processed and binarised, and the binarized fingerprints are partitioned into train- and test-set for the FPGA-based neural network. The neural network emloyed in this exploration is known as Ehnanced Convergent Network (EPCN). The results obtained are compared to other alternative systems. They demonstrate the suitability of the FPGA-based EPCN for such tasks. © 2009 IEEE.
