Iris authentication in handheld devices - considerations for constraint-free acquisition
As a near ideal biometric, iris authentication is widely used and mobile acquisition techniques are known. But iris acquisition on handheld imaging devices, such as smartphones, poses multiple, unique challenges. In this ...
Detection and repair of flash-eye in handheld devices
Red-eye and flash-eye defects in still photography continue to cause problems for digital imaging devices. New variants of flash-eye defects have appeared as cameras and cameras sub-systems get smaller in size. This paper ...
Evaluation of Combined Visible/NIR Camera for Iris Authentication on smartphones
Iris biometrics provide a mature and robust method of authentication, but are typically applied in a controlled environment and under constrained acquisition conditions. In this paper, the adaption of iris biometrics for ...
A practical challenge for iris authentication on handheld imaging devices
Following on the introduction of fingerprint biometrics, iris authentication for handheld imaging devices has become a hot research topic. However widespread adoption of this technology faces a significant challenge as ...
Proof-of-concept and evaluation of a dual function visible/NIR camera for iris authentication in smartphones
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2015-05)
As a robust method of person authentication, iris biometrics is making its way in to consumer devices such as smartphones. Current iris image acquisition devices typically work under controlled environment and constrained ...
A crash course on patents for engineers
Most engineers are aware of the existence of patents. Indeed the preparation of patent disclosures is an important aspect of most research engineering job functions. Yet for many engineers the world of patents remains ...
