The Identity Recognition and Imaging System (IRIS) Project was initiated to explore the fabrication and integration of a CCD imaging array into a complete image recognition system. Such a system has now been realized in part, and consists of an surfacechannel 64-by-64 pixel CCD array, external driver circuitry, data acquisition board, and a Win95-based PC running a custom pattern recognition software package called TALONir.
