ABSTRACT: Iris recognition, a relatively new biometric technology, has great advantages, such as variability, stability and security, and is most promising for high security environments. A new iris recognition algorithm is proposed in this paper, which adopts Independent Component Analysis (ICA) to extract iris texture feature and a competitive learning mechanism to recognize iris patterns. Experimental results show that the algorithm is efficient and adaptive to the environment, e.g. it works well even for blurred iris images, variable illumination, and interference of eyelids and eyelashes.
