|Title:||Robust Iris Recognition Baseline for the Occular Challenge|
|Published:||January 20, 2011|
|Abstract:||Due to its distinctiveness, the human iris is a popular biometric feature used to identity a person with high accuracy. The Grand Challenge in iris recognition is to have an effective algorithm for subject verification or identification under a broad range of image and environmental conditions. This paper presents VASIR (Video-based Automated System for Iris Recognition) as a response to such a challenge. We describe the details of the VASIR procedure and show its superiority over the IrisBEE algorithm. We also demonstrate the effectiveness of the automated best-image-selection component and give details of VASIR s performance as a baseline/benchmark. Finally, our image quality scores and how they relate to VASIR s performance are examined.|
