Information fusion in fingerprint recognition has been studied in several papers. However, only a few papers have been focused on sensor interoperability and sensor fusion. In this paper, these two topics are studied using a multisensor database acquired with three different fingerprint sensors. Authentication experiments using minutiae and ridge-based matchers are reported. Results show that the performance drops dramatically when matching images from different sensors. We have also observed that fusing scores from different sensors results in better performance than fusing different instances from the same sensor. © 2006 IEEE.
