The amount of time taken to enroll or collect data from a subject in a fingerprint recognition system is of paramount importance. Time taken directly affects cost. A trade-off between number of impressions collected and number of interaction attempts allowed to submit those impressions must be realized. In this experiment, data were collected using an optical fingerprint sensor. Each subject submitted six successful impressions with a maximum of 18 interaction attempts. The resulting images were analyzed using three methods: the number of interaction attempts per finger, quality differences from the first three impressions to the last three impressions, and finally matching performance from the first three impressions to the last three impressions. The right middle finger seemed to have the most issues collecting as it required the most interaction attempts. Analysis was performed to show no significant differences in image quality or matching performance. However, after further analysis, a steady improvement was noticed from Group A to Group B in both image quality and matching performance.
