OFDM and Fingerprint Authentication for Efficient Airport Security

Authors: K.Amrithavarshini, S.Chandrachudeswaran


This paper presents an idea to improve the efficiency of security checks in airports through the active tracking and monitoring of passengers and staff using OFDM modulation technique and Finger print authentication. The details of the passenger are multiplexed using OFDM .To authenticate the passenger, the fingerprint along with important identification information is collected. The details of the passenger can be transmitted after necessary modulation, and received using various transceivers placed within the premises of the airport, and checked at the appropriate check points, thereby increasing the efficiency of checking. OFDM has been employed for spectral efficiency.

Keywords: Airport security, Fingerprint Authentication, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing, FFT Algorithm
