Oki Develops Iris Recognition for Camera Phones

Oki Iris Recognition Technology for Mobile Terminals

You could soon be using a PDA or camera phone that recognizes your eyes, your iris to be precise, and it won’t activate for anybody else. In March 2007, barely four months from now, Oki Electric will start commercial production of their Iris Recognition Technology for Mobile Terminals which will become part of mobile phones and PDAs.

Oki said the iris recognition technology was developed with their own algorithm, which provides highly accurate authentication and, compared to conventional locks such as typing in PIN numbers, provides easier access for authentication.

Oki has been providing its iris recognition technology-based equipment to government agencies, financial institutions and other enterprises in Japan and overseas. While these devices require a dedicated infrared camera, the new Iris Recognition Technology for Mobile Terminals can use a standard camera that is embedded in a mobile terminal like a PDA or camera phone, because of the original algorithm Oki has developed.
