Effective segmentation of sclera, iris and pupil in noisy eye images

Mrunal Pathak, N. Srinivasu, Vinayak Bairagi


In today’s sensitive environment, for personal authentication, iris recognition is the most attentive technique among the various biometric technologies. One of the key steps in the iris recognition system is the accurate iris segmentation from its surrounding noises including pupil and sclera of a captured eye-image. In our proposed method, initially input image is preprocessed by using bilateral filtering. After the preprocessing of images contour based features such as, brightness, color and texture features are extracted. Then entropy is measured based on the extracted contour based features to effectively distinguishing the data in the images. Finally, the convolution neural network (CNN) is used for the effective sclera, iris and pupil parts segmentations based on the entropy measure. The proposed results are analyzed to demonstrate the better performance of the proposed segmentation method than the existing methods.
