    Hello. Please I'm considering Biometric access control system based on fingerprint scanning and recognition for authentication as my final year project in a university.
    I need to improve on the project so it won't be a copy and paste thing.
    I thought about designing the one that could be interfaced with computer but I need more than that to convince my supervisor who has earlier rejected 5 different topics before. Please help me ASAP

    Five rejects and your supervisor hasn't given you any advice?

    Maybe if you switched from looking at fingerprints to reading the pattern of veins on the back of an individual's hands you would have a project that was not just copy and paste.

    That wasn't helpful sir.
    Please if you have information you can share ignore my ineptitude for now.
    What I really planned to work on before was "Analysis of quality of service of GSM networks in Nigeria" he claimed the topic is too broad for a degree program and bla bla bla. This one is just a last minute resolve. I'll meet him in 2 hours time. So please help me if you can

    That wasnt

    From Wikipedia:

    You have yet to state a question that can be answered.

    The title of your thread implied that you needed a project on biometrics. You gave no clue as to what other 5 projects you had suggested and why they were rejected. I think asking for that information is fair play and provides good background information for moving forward to help you.

    Since you indicated that fingerprint reading might be considered by your professor as too easy, I suggested another avenue for person identification that is used, but is not nearly as well established. Good luck.

    What John suggested was a very valid proposal... shine a strong light through a person's finger or hand and try to match it to a registered vein pattern.
    That sort of project would not be cut-and-paste and would indeed be a very good challenge for anyone, even for an expert.
    You could also add something else to the project to differentiate it, like measuring skin color, or checking for a pulse to make sure that the hand is not fake, etc...

    [QUOTolabi, post: 856444, member: 265794"]Thanks for your comment[/QUOTE]
    What can i add to the project to make it sort of unique.
    The gaol of the project is to use fingerprint scanner to authenticate student before they are allowed to write exams. Automatic door is not part of the peoject .
    Thanks for taking time to read my post

    My lecturer has finally approved "design and construction of GSM phone wireless charger "
    I was wrong to think he might like biometrics.
    I have started a research on the topics, any suggestion on the materials that will help me will be highly appreciated.
    I can't thank you all enough for making it worth a while to to read my thread.
