TATTOO RECOGNITION

A research project with Michigan state University - Since 2009, Morpho has been working in partnership with the Michigan State University (MSU) to advance research on biometric tattoo recognition technology. The project seeks to further enhance the capabilities of the tattoo matching software licensed to Morpho by the university's Pattern Recognition and Image Processing (PRIP) Laboratory.

Merging the cutting-edge software acquired from the university with Morpho core expertise, Morpho was able to produce a state-of-the-art tattoo matching solution. The solution uses features such as color, shape and texture to assist in automatic identification of individuals by matching a query tattoo against large collections of images stored in police databases. Morpho expects that this new project will lead to the development of advanced identification and analysis techniques for criminal investigations.
