Iris pattern Recognition is an automated method of biometric identification that uses mathematical pattern-Recognition techniques on images of one or both of the irises of an individual’s eyes, whose complex random patterns are unique, stable, and can be seen from some distance. Iris recognition uses video camera technology with subtle near infrared illumination to acquire images of the detail-rich, intricate structures of the iris which are visible externally. In this narrative research paper the input image is captured and the success of the iris recognition depends on the quality of the image so the captured image is subjected to the preliminary image preprocessing techniques like localization, segmentation, normalization and noise detection followed by texture and edge feature extraction by using Gabor filters and wavelets then the processed image is matched with templates stored in the database to detect the Iris Patterns.
Key words: Gabor filters / Near Infrared / Gabor wavelet transform / Hough Transform / Iris patterns / Bit patterns / Hamming Distance
