Iris segmentation methodology for non-cooperative recognition

  title={Iris segmentation methodology for non-cooperative recognition},
  author={Hugo Proença and Lu{\'i}s A. Alexandre},
An overview of the iris image segmentation methodologies for biometric purposes is presented. The main focus is on the analysis of the ability of segmentation algorithms to process images with heterogeneous characteristics, simulating the dynamics of a non-cooperative environment. The accuracy of the four selected methodologies on the UBIRIS database is tested and, having concluded about their weak robustness when dealing with non-optimal images regarding focus, reflections, brightness or… CONTINUE READING
