In an effort to strengthen and expand the development of embedded iris biometric applications, EyeLock has opened an IoT Center of Excellence in Austin, Texas.
EyeLock’s iris authentication platform uses video technology to identify more than 240 points of unique characteristics in each human iris. The identity authentication firm says the technology is now available in miniaturized modules, creating the opportunity for ’embedding’ into multiple market segments, including: smart mobile; computation; automotive, and; health and medical.
“Austin has become an epicenter of engineering, computation and advanced machine learning. Establishing an IoT Center of Excellence will extend our talent advantage over competitors, enable us to accelerate growth across embedded and IoT solutions, and allow the EyeLock team to work side-by-side with our partners to help implement iris authentication technology to meet the growing needs of their clients,” said Jeff Carter, chief technology officer of EyeLock.
In a statement, the company said it continues to expand relationships with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs), as well as its network of retailers, channel partners and resellers.
“People are our most important asset, and in the last six months we have assembled a team of industry leaders in advanced embedded technologies, optics and mobile, adding to EyeLock’s world class talent already in place in New York City and Princeton, New Jersey,” Carter said. “Opening the Center in Austin extends EyeLock’s market leadership in biometric technology advancement.”
Back in April, EyeLock introduced a new portable template solution and myris for enrollment applications.
