FVS is Fingerprint Verification Competition. It is the world's largest competition for fingerprint verification algorithms and is organized every two years by:
The University of Bologna (Italy)
The State University of San Jose (EUA)
State University of Michigan (EUA)
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain).
What is FVC 2006?
FVC 2006 is the FVC competition that took place in fall of 2006 with seventy algorithms submitted by fifty three industry and academic participants. FVC applies algorithms over four databases of fingerprint images from multiple sources and computes a set of biometrics parameters describing its accuracy and performance behavior. Each of four image database has diverse quality and characteristics depending of the source sensor type. The FVC 2006 databases were obtained from the following sources:
Database 1: Electric field sensor.
Database 2: Optical sensor.
Database 3: Thermal sweeping sensor.
Database 4: Artificial images from SFinGe v 3.0 software.
