Abstract

The randomness and richness present in the iris texture make the 2D Gabor filter bank analysis a suitable technique to be used for iris recognition systems. To accurately characterize complex texture structures using 2D Gabor filters it is necessary to use multiple sets of parameters of this type of filters. This paper proposes a technique of optimizing multiple sets of 2D Gabor filter parameters to gradually enhance the accuracy of an iris recognition system. The proposed methodology is suitable to be applied on both near infrared and visible spectrum iris images. To illustrate the efficiency of the filter bank design technique, UBIRISv1 database was used for benchmarking
