Mr.Tamaal Roy, CEO, Biomatiques, shared a few words with the media at the conference. He also shared the story of How the company managed to get the STQC certification and their struggle in the past years. Below are the words quoted by him at the event.
“Our indigenization has helped us bring down the cost of Iris authentication to match fingerprint authentication. With our vision of ‘Total Security’, we aim to completely replace fingerprint authentication which is error-prone. The applications for this technology are varied, and we are expecting this price revolution to change the security mindset in India and the globe completely. The awarded STQC Department of IT allows connection of our Iris scanners to the Aadhaar database also.”
Iris recognition technology can prove to be the Next Big Thing in Barometric Security field, after Fingerprint scanning. It can soon make its way on Mobile phones, Tablets, Personal Computers, Airports, Government facilities, Enterprises, or even our homes. The Iris recognition technology is being used by the UIDAI in 'Aadhaar' unique Identification Number. With STQC department, the Iris scanners can also connect to Aadhaar database.

How Iris Recognition Works?
As you might be knowing, Iris scanning involves scanning your eyes for identification, you might be wondering How this thing works? well here is a brief answer on it. Iris recognition method is an automated form of biometric identification. It uses mathematical pattern-recognition techniques on video images of one or both of the irises of an individual's eyes, whose complex random patterns are unique, stable, and can be seen from some distance. The iris-recognition algorithm can identify up to 250 identification points including rings, furrows and freckles within the iris.
