ShoeExpert: Automated imprint recognition
The aim of the ShoeExpert project was to develop an assistance system for automated acquisition, analysis and classification of shoe and tyre prints.
Amongst others, forensics deal with the acquisition and analysis of crime scene evidence such as footprints. In the past, these activities were mostly performed manually and thus required a great amount of resources.
It was the aim of the ShoeExpert project to engineer a system for automatic classification of evidence. In close cooperation with Projectina AG, the IMS developed an assistance system which automatises the acquisition, analysis and classification of shoe and tyre prints. It allows to reliably compare acquired 2D and 3D prints and to filter analogies which can then be submitted to detailed expert analysis.
