EyeLock to showcase iris authentication technology at CES
EyeLock will showcase outdoor and indoor access control solutions and release its new embedded iris authentication solution “Harrington” at CES this week.
Harrington, which was recently integrated into ViaTouch’s Auto-Retail Vending Solution, is a self-contained, standalone iris enrollment and authentication system. It offers a variety of system interface topologies available to the end-user with three different image sensor lensing options that allow nominal working distances up to 60cm with imager module thickness between 3.0mm and 5.7mm. Dual iris enrollment and single- or dual- iris authentication is supported with software and algorithms that are portable to the OS used in the OEM device.
EyeLock will also demo the nanoNXT indoor access control system and the nanoEXT outdoor device, which can withstand extreme exterior elements and all lighting conditions including sunlight. The device is also vandal-resistant and allows for accurate authentication at a standoff distance of 16-30 inches with instant height-adjusting capabilities to ensure ADA compliance.
“The addition of an outdoor unit to our platform speaks directly to customer; desires to implement a single convenient solution for managing outdoor and indoor access control as well as to those looking to upgrade their exterior access points using unmatched accuracy of iris biometrics,” said Jeff Carter, CEO, EyeLock.
EyeLock’s proprietary technology collects more than 240 unique iris characteristics, and the performance capabilities of its algorithm have been validated by Novetta. Its reference designs have working distances up to 60 cm (23.6 inches) with a false accept rate of 1 in 1.5 million for authentication with a single eye and a false rejection rate lower than 1 percent.
