Finger vein recognition is a system in which, instead of fingerprints, vein pattern of a finger is used for the identification of an individual. The technology of finger vein recognition is advanced as compared to the one used in fingerprint recognition. The benefit of using finger vein recognition system is that users are not required to get in the physical contact with the recognition device, which remarkably increases its life. Instead, finger vein recognition system captures the image of finger vein pattern and matches it against the finger vein image stored in the database.
Many organizations are now replacing fingerprint recognition system with finger vein recognition system as it is durable, easy to implement and is cheaper at the same time.
