The goal of the project is the development of a system for recognizing people at a distance without their cooperation, using iris and face (on the visible and infrared) detection and recognition techniques. The project has developed new methods for:


  • iris segmentation in the visible wavelength
  • iris recognition in the visible wavelength
  • real-time face detection in the visible wavelength
  • face segmentation in the visible and far infrared
  • face recognition in visible wavelength
  • motion tracking in the far infrared
  • gender recognition from visible wavelength face images
