Iris Recognition: The Path Forward
February 2010 (vol. 43 no. 2)
pp. 30-35
Arun Ross, West Virginia University
Iris recognition systems have made tremendous inroads over the past decade, but work remains to improve their accuracy in environments characterized by unfavorable lighting, large stand-off distances, and moving subjects.
