Abstract : The Cyclops research project is aimed at developing computer-based systems that perform various processes on pictorial information, including enhancement and recognition. The work described in the report uses this pre-processing system as the basis for further research in the domain of recognition. Through this research, a process for matching fingerprints was developed. Through this research, a process for matching fingerprints was developed. With this process, fingerprints are pre-processed to extract certain minutiae, and these minutiae are then matched to determine if the fingerprints match. The present report describes the matching programs in detail. A sample run of the process for three fingerprints in shown. (Author)
