Researchers Prof RA Owens; Dr AS Mian
Brief description This project will undertake research to develop a prototype system for personal identification that can be used by law enforcement and security agencies to enrol people at points of entry at public places. The system will non-invasively acquire face and iris biometrics and match them against a database of known persons. The proposed system can be used in sensitive buildings for access control, eliminating the need to carry access cards or remember passwords. This research contributes to the national research priority of Safeguarding Australia. We will develop new techniques in computer vision and train new researchers in this area.
