Iris scanner can ID a person from 40 feet away

_____________________________________

PITTSBURGH, May 22 (UPI) -- Big Brother is growing up. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University recently demonstrated an iris scanner capable of identifying a person at a distance of 40 feet.

In a series of tests, identity recognition software developed by scientists at Carnegie Mellon's CyLab Biometrics Center was able to identify unique patterns in a person's iris and match it to a name in a database using a live video feed honed on the eyes of the subject.

 

Imagine this: a police officer pulls a speeding car over. Before the officer has exited the car, iris scanning software has picked up the driver's eyes in the rearview mirror and matched the iris to an identity -- that of a potentially dangerous subject.

That's what happened during one of the CyLab's recent tests.
