The evaluation of Fast Tenprint Capture devices is threefold. The first is the absolute measurement, i.e., stipulating the specifications and designing targets to implement specifications. The second is the relative measurement for interoperability, namely, matching 2-d rolled-equivalent fingerprint images produced using FTC devices against those collected from certified live scanners. The third is the evaluation of the real time of completing one transaction carried out by an FTC device. The specifications set in the absolute measurement shall be supported by the results from the relative measurement. The interactions between the absolute measurement and the relative measurement shall take several iterations. Once it is done, only the absolute measurement shall be invoked to evaluate FTC devices.
We presented the framework regarding the evaluation of 3-D fingerprint image capture devices at the Biometric Consortium Conference at Baltimore. You may download the presentation.
We had a meeting with Dr. Stanley Erickson, who is the sponsor of the project at NIJ. You may download the presentation.
The Evaluation Steering Committee has been formed. Here is the list of ESC members.
A draft (Version 1.0, February 28, 2008) of Specifications for Fast Tenprint Capture Devices was written by our Evaluation Steering Committee. You may download this draft.
