Feasibility of Hough-Transform-Based Iris Localisation for Real-Time-Application

  title={Feasibility of Hough-Transform-Based Iris Localisation for Real-Time-Application},
  author={Klaus D. T{\"o}nnies and Frank Behrens and Melanie Aurnhammer},
We present a fast method for locating iris features in frontal face images based on the Hough transform. It consists of an initial iris detection step and a tracking step which uses iris features from initialisation for speeding up computation. The purpose of research was to evaluate the feasibility of the method for tracking at 200 frames per second or higher. Processing speed of the prototypical implementation on a 266Mhz Pentium II PC is approximately 6 seconds for initial iris detection and… CONTINUE READING
