This represents the company’s 46th issued patent.
According to a company statement, the mobility identity platform: provides opportunistic acquisition of a number of iris images from which a limited number of images that each meets a quality threshold is stored or maintained for further processing; does not require autofocus functions that often trail user movements and fail to achieve good image focus; evaluates acquired images in real-time to select those that feature sufficiently exposed and in-focus irises; dynamically acquires more images if prior images are of insufficient quality; supports mobile or other applications where biometric acquisition may coincide with eye-blinking or is susceptible to motion blur due to user movements at the instant of acquisition, and; supports applications where device memory available for holding images is often limited.
“Our latest patented invention helps provide a fast and easy user experience by using the opportunistic acquisition of a sequence of images to select a limited number of images with the best iris-related quality metrics to hold in memory for further processing,” explained Jim Demitrieus, CEO of EyeLock. “Once the images are selected, our algorithms immediately create a template which is then used for matching and recognition.”
Earlier this month, EyeLock was granted a U.S. patent for technology that links an iris image with a face image acquired in sequence (during the same transaction).
