  • You people may want to check out the BeagleBone Black. Opensource. All hardware seems to be source-able in small quantities.

  • Correct me if I’m wrong: I understand, the 506 bytes template is only available once the third print was taken during enrollment. Then it can be downloaded by the enrollment ID. (Should look at the C++ demo code … but I don’t have any inclination right now … sorry!)

    If the template IS available after scanning the finger, it is probably what you are looking for. It must be some sort of ‘summary’ of the print - so to say. Then it would be enough to simply compare it with other templates in the database. Perhaps applying some tolerance. I would capture the same print and create a template several times. Then see the differences between the templates. This would give some idea regarding the tolerance/deviation. Perhaps it leads somewhere.

    It seems one can download the picture of the captured print though.

    I tried finding a ‘fingerprint identification algorithm’ ‘for embedded systems’ - none of them gave the actual algorithm … maybe you are luckier or more patient … pls tell us if you solved it. :)

  • If you don’t have access to a several hundred dollars worth of scope, measure the current consumption of the ID-2. When it is at maximum, the coil is tuned. I achieve 17-18 cm with a card. Hand-made coil, as it is described in the document.

  • Is there a BEZEL available for this? Thanks.

  • What capacity card does it accept? 1G, 2G, 32 GB?
    Also what is the file system: fat 12, 16, 32?

No public wish lists :(
