Smart cities are the need of developing India. One of the main concerns of smart cities is security of its people and safeguarding them from human threats. This concern can be solved to a great extent by using fingerprint recognition & matching techniques in smart cities. Also, fingerprint matching can be used to have public records, smart attendance system and can be used at many more places. So this paper deals with using fingerprint matching and recognition to make cities smarter.
