Conventional iris imagers require precise positioning of the eyes and close contact with subject, making them unsuitable for situations that require fast and reliable scanning of a large population. AOptix's approach overcomes this drawback by allowing for easy subject participation. The stand-off recognition system facilitates iris image capture without any effort on the part of the subject. Subjects merely position themselves within the specified capture zone and glimpse at the imaging device for a short period. The adaptive optics technology automatically targets the subject's eye, capturing multiple high quality images at a sufficiently high rate (less than a second), choosing the best image for identification purposes.
"This iris recognition technology suits a wide variety of subjects in government and commercial applications such as border management, bank transactions, national ID cards, access control and other activities that require a high degree of precision in identifying an individual," says Rangarajan. "The system allows for a choice of encoding and matching algorithms and hence can be customized according to the user's requirements."
Recognizing the company's efforts in addressing the challenges faced by iris recognition modality of biometrics, Frost & Sullivan is proud to confer the 2008 North American Technology Innovation Award in the field of noninvasive biometrics on AOptix.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that
