Research and Development
Central to the technology created by Warwick Warp is a completely new approach to image recognition. Instead of relying solely on a set of features, Warwick Warp has developed an innovative modelling technology which allows the object to be described using mathematical functions. This creates an idealised model of the object, with an understanding of the underlying characteristics and structure; features can then be captured using a distortion-free coordinate system. A major advantage of this technique is that when presented with an image that varies from the ideal, the system can cope effectively with the variation and has a higher chance of producing a successful identification. The Warwick Warp modelling technology, which is far more robust to variation than traditional methods, has been patented and research is continuing to refine, improve and develop the matching algorithms.
Fingerprint Matching and Identification
This completely new approach to fingerprint matching exceeds established accuracy benchmarks and delivers ultra-high accuracy for all types of fingerprints. The performance has been independently verified (NIST PFT and ELFT tests) as being among the most accurate available.
We specialise in developing innovative software products that enable integrators and developers to incorporate highly accurate fingerprint matching into their solutions. The fingerprint matching technology is made available as Software Development Kits (SDK) and SDK has been optimised to address the requirements of specific markets: AFIS, police (latent prints) and standard LiveScan applications (access control etc.).
