    A New Angle On Iris Recognition From Smart Sensors, LTD.

    in Technology

    In the course of these radio shows, we have interviewed thus far two Biomeric Vendors whom specialize in scanning the eye for the purposes of verification and/or identification of an individual.  So far, we have examined Sclera Recognition, as well as Iris Recognition.  In today's interview, we interview Mr. Martin George, the CEO of Smart Sensors, LTD., based out of the United Kingdom.  The UK can be considered the 'home' of Iris Recognition, as it was Dr. John Daugmann of the University of Cambridge whom developed the first set of commercial Iris Recognition algorithms.  What sets Smart Sensors. LTD., today from the rest of the competition is that they are a 'one stop shop' for the customer wanting to use Iris Recognition technology.  For example, they noy only offer various types of Iris Recognition hardware devices, but they also offer SDK's and database prototypes to meet the exacting needs of the customer.  In this radio show, we learn from Mr. Martin George about their Iris Recognition products and services, what sets them apart from other Iris Recognition vendors, and what their plans and visions for the future are.
