Abstract

We propose a method to track the iris surface deformation in image sequences captured by a special infrared illuminated high-speed camera using elastic graph matching. A circular grid elastic graph (iris graph) to track the iris radial and circular movement of pupillary activity caused by varying lighting conditions is introduced. We compare the phase similarity with the magnitude similarity for tracking iris features and we also relate the determination of the weight of topography preservation in the similarity cost function to the amount of movement of the object being tracked. The algorithm is tested with a series of synthetic iris images and a series of real iris images. We show that the deformation of the iris surface area during the constriction of the pupil operates mainly in the middle and the peripheral parts of the iris and that this deformation is non linear.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
