FINGER PRINT RECOGNITION ENABLED PASSPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Passports and other identification documents may be enhanced using recent advancements in technology. Various national and international bodies are pursuing machine-readable approaches with biometric information. In particular, the international civil aviation organization (ICAO) has adopted standards whereby passports can store biometric identifiers.
The term biometrics is now widely known as “the science of measuring physical characteristics, to verify a person’s identity which includes voice recognition, iris and face scans, and fingerprint recognition.” Fingerprint recognition has emerged as one of the most popular and convenient biometric technologies because it is more accurate than voice recognition and cheaper than iris scanning. Now, more and more everyday gadgets are coming equipped with fingerprint scanners including some cell phones.
The user has to show his passport and papers related to the passport at the checking section whenever he wants to go abroad. Technology is increasing day by day at a rapid pace that human is able to use the technology in a right way and also capable of misusing it. Thus, in order to avoid all such kinds of malfunctioning in the airports at the passport checking counters, we have designed fingerprint recognition enabled passport management system where the person is asked to give his fingerprint as a sign of check and security along with the passport, visa etc.
When the user applies for the passport, he has to give his fingerprint impression along with the other details. Thus, the passport will be issued to the person with the details being recorded in the database. Thus, when this person is required to submit his passport for the checking purposes, he needs to give his fingerprint again to check whether the already existing impression (given by him at the time of applying for the passport) matches with the presently giving fingerprint. If it matches, the person is allowed to fly wherever he wishes to. But if it does not match, the alarm immediately activates and the system alerts the security so as to take the further action.
