Abstract

Research in iris recognition has been explosive in recent years. There are a few fundamental issues in iris recognition such as iris acquisition, iris segmentation, texture analysis and matching analysis that has been brought up. In this paper, we focus on a fundamental issue in iris segmentation which is segmentation accuracy. The accuracy of iris segmentation can be negatively affected because of poor segmentation of iris boundary. Iris boundary might have unsmooth, poor and unclear edges. Because of that, a method that can segment this type of boundary needs to be developed. A method based on active contour is proposed not only to increase the segmentation accuracy, but also to increase the recognition accuracy. The proposed method is compared with the modified Hough Transform method to observe the performance of both methods. Iris images from CASIA v4 are used for our experiment. According to results, the proposed method is better than the modified Hough Transform method in terms of segmentation accuracy, recognition accuracy and implementation time. This shows that the proposed method is more accurate than the Hough Transform method.
