    Biometric fingerprint scanners scan the external skin features onto a 2D image. The performance of the automatic fingerprint identification system suffers if the finger skin is wet, worn out, fake fingerprint is used et ...
  • Sharma, Ameeth; Singh, Ann; Roberts, Ted; Ramokolo, Rocky; Van der Westhuizen, Corrie (CSIR, 2016-11)
    The optical coherence technique (OCT) technique, which was demonstrated by Fercher and Huang in the early 90s, has made significant strides in bio-medical diagnostic applications in the fields of dermatology, dentistry and ...
  • Sharma, Ameeth (South African Institute of Physics (SAIP), 2016-07)
    Light based techniques continue to gain momentum in different spheres of diagnostic and therapeutic applications as a result of their non-invasive, noncontact properties. One such technique is Optical Coherence tomography ...
  • Dorasamy, Kribashnee; Webb-Ray, Leandra; Tapamo, J-R (Springer, 2016-12)
    Overcoming small inter-class variation when fingerprints have missing singular points (SPs) is one of the current challenges faced in fingerprint classification, since class information is scarce. Grouping the orientation ...
  • Koen, Hildegarde; De Villiers, Johan P; Roodt, H; De Waal, A (Elsevier, 2017-03)
    A significant challenge in ecological modelling is the lack of complete sets of high-quality data. This is especially true in the rhino poaching problem where data is incomplete. Although there are many poaching attacks, ...
