Half Iris versus Circular Iris Matching

  title={Half Iris versus Circular Iris Matching},
  author={Safaa S. Omran and Aqeel A. Al-Hilali},
Iris recognition system provides automatic identification of an individual based on a unique feature. Ridge Energy Detection (RED) algorithm is one of the most accurate identification method to detect the iris features today. RED algorithm is applied on rectangle iris that generated from the normalization process. RED algorithm constructed a template contains the features of the iris by using two type of filter (horizontal and vertical). This paper generated two different iris templates, one of… 
Using an FPGA to Accelerate Iris Recognition
An enhancement for the iris recognition system was applied for each processing part to speed up the execution time and make the opportunity to work in real time applications.


Iris recognition using circular symmetric filters
The method consists of three major components: image preprocessing, feature extraction and classifier design, which uses an efficient approach called nearest feature line (NFL) for iris matching.
Person Identification Technique Using Human Iris Recognition
A new iris recognition system that implements (i) gradient decomposed Hough transform / integro-differential operators combination for iris localization and (ii) the "analytic image" concept (2D Hilbert transform) to extract pertinent information from iris texture is examined.
Iris recognition: an emerging biometric technology
Iris recognition as one of the important method of biometrics-based identification systems and iris recognition algorithm is described and experimental results show that the proposed method has an encouraging performance.
Iris recognition using the Ridge Energy Direction (RED) algorithm
A new ridge-energy-direction (RED) algorithm for iris recognition that reduces the effects of illumination, since only direction is used.
Biometric personal identification based on iris patterns
A new system for personal identification based on iris patterns is presented, which employs the rich 2D information of the iris and is translation, rotation, and scale invariant.

Iris template generation with parallel logic
This project presents a performance comparison of the parallelized algorithm on the FPGA system to a traditional CPU-based version of the iris recognition algorithm, which outperforms an optimized C++ code version determining the information content of an iris approximately 324 times faster.

  • 1993
A method for rapid visual recognition of personal identity is described, based on the failure of a statistical test of independence, which implies a theoretical "cross-over" error rate of one in 131000 when a decision criterion is adopted that would equalize the false accept and false reject error rates.
Comparing an FPGA to a Cell for an Image Processing Application
This research project studies the differences in performance of a modern image processing algorithm on these two hardware platforms, and demonstrates a 2.5 times speedup of the parallelized algorithm on the FPGA system when compared to a Cell processor-based version.
