Abstract
In this paper, we describe the novel techniques
we developed to create an Iris Recognition System, in
addition to an analysis of our results. We used a fusion
mechanism that amalgamates both, a Canny Edge
Detection scheme and a Circular Hough Transform, to
detect the iris' boundaries in the eye's digital image. We
then applied the Haar wavelet in order to extract the
deterministic patterns in a person's iris in the form of a
feature vector. By comparing the quantized vectors using
the Hamming Distance operator, we determine finally
whether two irises are similar. Our results show that our
system is quite effective.
