• Classical approach versus our
  approach (Packets Method)
• Experimentations on 2 databases
• Introduction of color information
• Conclusion and perspectives

• Study of iris recognition on normal
  light illumination
   –Use of usual devices
   –Fusion between iris and other
     biometric modalities (face, eye

Comparison infra-red / normal light

• Lack of texture information
• Presence of a great number of reflections 4

   • Spatial parameters in
     polar coordinates (ρ,θ).
   • 4 resolution levels
   • 2048 coefficients for
     coding the iris.

      Our approach : Packet method
• Process the whole
  image at each level
  of resolution
• Starting with higher
  mother wavelet
• 1664 coefficients for
  coding iris

• IrisINT : Iris images recorded under
  normal       light illumination.  70
  persons 700 images.

• CASIA : Iris images taken under
  infra red illumination. 110 persons,
  770 images. Recorded at NLPR
       Roc curves (IrisINT)

•Poor results for the wavelet method
•The wavelet Packet method is more
robust using visible light images      9
  Comparative results on CASIA
          and IrisINT
Databases                        IrisINT        CASIA
Type of errors             FAR       FRR     FAR     FRR
Classical wavelet method   2%       12.04%   0.35%   2.08%
Packets method             0%        0.57%   0.2%    1.38%

• With infra red illumination, the two
methods     have     quite    the same
performance. WP is more robust to the
presence of eyelids or eyelashes.
                Use of color information
                            ACR method

  Original color image                                      Color image (256 colors)
(71.000 different colors)

 We perform iris recognition using
 the same algorithm as the one
 developed for grey level image

                                    color reduction
     Use of color information :
      ROC curve on IrisINT

Use of color information allows a better
discrimination between the persons.        12
 Conclusion and perspectives
• The packets method allows better
  performance on normal light
  illumination images.
• Color information can be used to
  improve results on simple grey
  level images.
• Results need to be confirmed using
  larger bimodal database (in order to
  decrease the variance).
