Iris Recognition

Iris recognition is a biometric technology where identification is verified through scanning the person's iris.

The technology is favoured as a non-contact and non-intrusive method of identification and is widerly used in a number of applications including at airports and in the production of secure documentation.

Initially, the technology was used for short range scanning but is becoming increasingly viable for long-range scanning applications.
