Abstract

The reported accuracies of iris recognition systems are generally higher on near infrared images than on colour RGB images. To increase a colour iris recognition system’s performance, a possible solution is a multialgorithmic approach with an appropriate fusion mechanism. In the present work, this approach is investigated by fusing three algorithms at the score level to enhance the performance of a colour iris recognition system. The contribution of this paper consists of proposing 2 novel feature extraction methods for colour iris images, one based on a 3-bit encoder of the 8 neighborhood and the other one based on gray level co-occurrence matrix. The third algorithm employed uses the classical Gabor filters and phase encoding for feature extraction. A weighted average is used as a matching score fusion. The efficiency of the proposed iris recognition system is demonstrated on UBIRISv1 dataset.
