Oki has claimed to develop a mobile application which can take mobile phone security to the next level. Iris recognition technology is now no longer limited to the hi-tech computer , but will be avaiable for camera mobile phones after the official availability is announced by the company.
In order to run the Iris Recognition Technology, the mobile phone has to be equipped with a camera capable of at least 1 megapixel resolution, although a 2 megapixel one would make it more probable to see better results.
This application is currently available for symbian and Windows mobile platform, that means Iphone is still out of list . Seems like the technology is surprisingly accurate, and reports have said that only 1 in 100,000 resulted in error.
Oki Electronic has made no specifications on the date when this software will be available for everyone to use or the price tag it will come with.
Normal Iris Scanner uses Infra Red for eye scan, but this application will be able to distinguish based on camera image , that too minimum of 1 megapixel !!! The results of error of only 1 in 100,000 seems highly questionable, with modern camera’s utilizing some many parameters for taking photograph !!! Moreover, camera picture quality highly depends on the how bright is the object is .. so what about the night , will it accept picture taken in night mode in cameras ?? Comments welcome
