TEAM ABSTRACT


Team Number:

095

School Name:

Ruidoso High School

Area of Science:

Super Computing

Project Title:

Fingerprint Recognition

The basis of our project is the recognition and access control to enter and enable a computer password from a fingerprint. This project will allow a user to open and access anything from his/her pc to a house hold door. With this configuration, the user can eliminate any chance of a "hacker" finding your password. Using the C++ programing language we will take a graphical representation of a fingerprint sending either a "yes" or a "no" signal, allowing or denying access, to the users hook-up.

In our program one of the only problems we might run into, is that our program is basicly a hardware based program. The way we plan to solve this problem is to concentrate only on the software and not worry about the hardware.
