Abstract
In this project, we will design a standard-based, robust, and efficient iris image quality measure tool. It can be used to select the images of sufficient quality for inclusion in the biometric repository database(s), improve collection processes, and develop quality-based iris matching algorithms. At the same time, it can be incorporated into iris recognition systems as plug-ins to improve recognition accuracy and efficiency. In this project, we will leverage our access to commercial iris recognition software and systems, our in house algorithms and systems, and variety of databases for our analysis and study. DL2Tech will work closely with our academic partner IUPUI in designing/developing this tool, and Raytheon for testing/evaluating and commercialization. We will participate in the NIST IREX for testing and evaluation. The proposed measure method can also help the development of the ISO/IEC 29794 Biometric sample quality - Part 6: Iris image data.
