A study I'm working on would like to be able to launch a fingerprint reader in our data collection form and then feed the binary fingerprint data from the external app back into the form. A pilot version of the study had done this in a Windows based system previously (prior to my involvement), but for the new study we are transitioning to ODK Collect for a variety of reasons. We inherited wired DigitalPersona 4500 Fingerprint Readers which have an SDK available for Android.
Please note, I am a data manager/coordinator for the study so will not be doing the coding/development myself. I am looking for recommendations/resources to give our programmers a jumping off point once their effort becomes available.Thank you.
Has anyone had success with feeding binary fingerprint data into ODK Collect forms? I've seen some old threads on the ODK Forum for related topics, but no outcomes so I'm unsure if there has been success with this or if there is a solution available that I'm missing.
