BusinessWire: Heptagon announces a mobile iris scanning solution leveraging IriTech’s iris recognition algorithms and software as well as Heptagon’s newly launched mobile imaging demo platform.
The new Heptagon module features proprietary illumination and a ToF sensor optimized for iris recognition, eye tracking, and face detection applications. The solution significantly reduces host system computational complexity, latency and power consumption. Depth information is used to improve speed and accuracy of iris scan applications and enables smaller baselines for mobile integration. The system will also benefit from the Heptagon’s Focus Controlled Packaging (FCP) camera technology that allows even further miniaturization.
“We are excited to launch our new UEYE platform together with IriTech iris scanning application here at MWC 2016,” says Erik Volkerink, Heptagon’s Chief Business Officer and Executive Vice President. “IriTech’s leading edge algorithms and technologies have been proven to perform extremely well in large field studies.”
Iris recognition applications in the consumer electronics market are forecasted to grow to $3.6B by 2020 making this the fastest growing segment of the iris recognition market.
