Abstract: Remote human identification using iris biometrics requires the development of automated algorithm of the robust segmentation of iris region pixels from visible face images. This paper presents a new automated iris segmentation framework for iris images acquired at-a-distance using visible imaging. The proposed approach achieves the segmentation of iris region pixels in two stages, i.e. (i) iris and sclera classification, and (ii) post-classification processing. Unlike the traditional edge-based segmentation approaches, the proposed approach simultaneously exploits the discriminative color features and localized Zernike moments to perform pixel-based classification. Rigorous experimental results presented in this paper confirm the usefulness of the proposed approach and achieve improvement of 42.4% in the average segmentation errors, on UBIRIS.v2 dataset, as compared to the previous approach.
