Depth sensor vs. iris scanner

Two infrared-based solutions, compared.

Observant harnesses depth sensors to capture 3D depth data for over 5 muscle groups for each eye, inferring granular information such as gaze direction based on eye lid position.

Combined with RGB pupil and iris tracking makes Observant ideal for high-fidelity eye tracking and emotion recognition, in all lighting conditions.

Iris scanning is an older technology commonly used to perform a 2D scan of a user's iris.

While it is mostly used for biometric authentication applications, it is sometimes used to perform elementary gaze tracking in low-light conditions.
