In this paper, the authors are comparing various fingerprint recognition system which are based on minutiae and ridge feature extraction. Here they are comparing various methods using minutiae features only or ridge features only or using both the methods together. This paper shows the direction for future scope on advancement of fingerprint recognition system. Methods focusing on conventional minutiae features (viz. minutiae type orientation and position) and methods focusing on additional ridge features (viz. Ridge Count (rc), Ridge Length (rl), Ridge Curvature Direction (rcd) and Ridge Type (rt)) are observed and results supporting the respective methods are compared. Thus focus is emphasized on minutiae matching using ridge feature approach and future scope is discussed.
