Abstract
To address the challenges on non-cooperative long-distance human authentication, identification, and verification; we propose an innovative scheme for developing a robust and automatic long-range biometric recognition system by combining face recognition and iris recognition of non-cooperative individuals in 24/7 operations. The system consists of three cameras. One is a wide field of view (WFOV) CCD video camera with InfraRed (IR) filter and powerful IR illuminators for human scan in a wide area and from a long distance. The other two cameras are high resolution video cameras with narrow field of view (NFOV) and IR filter & illuminators, mounted on a pan-tilt-unit (PTU) to capture the frontal view of human face and iris respectively. The WFOV detects the person and the NFOV cameras extract details for person identification. Once the frontal view shots are captured by the NFOV cameras, the face/iris models will be extracted by applying the state-of-the-art face/iris recognizers. In addition, a multimodality fusion approach integrates the face and iris recognition results to improve the overall recognition performance.
