Reading Irises from Cars?

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 14, 2013

What happens when you want to use biometrics at vehicle gates? In the past, this has meant staffing entry points with guards, and bringing readers to drivers inside their vehicles. However, SRI/Sarnoff demonstrated a new reader named 'IOM PassThru' at ISC West 2013 which they claim completely automates the process of reading irises, regardless of what type of vehicle the driver is sitting inside. Aside from a cool premise, does the IOM solve a real problem for access gates? In this note we examine.
