Eye-scanners used to track terrorists adapted to help search for missing children like Madeleine McCann

Eye-scanners used to track terrorists adapted to help search for missing children like Madeleine McCann


Eye-scanners used to track terrorists are being adapted to help search for missing children.
Researchers at a Pittsburgh university have developed high-resolution cameras that can be placed at major checkpoints, such as airports and border crossings, to scan a person's iris from 40-feet away.
It means missing people could be identified through their eye's iris, even if their physical appearance has altered drastically.
'This is breakthrough technology for locating missing children, especially victims of human trafficking,' said Marios Savvides, director of the CyLab Biometrics Center at Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering.
'Right now law enforcement has only photos of missing children to work with, but appearance can change.'
'We're giving them a biometric that really cannot be altered,' he told Fox News.
The technology could help children like British girl Madeleine McCann who went missing from a holiday apartment in Portugal, eight years ago, just days before her fourth birthday.
Pictures circulated of the blonde youngster focused on a distinctive mark on her right eye that her family hope will still lead to her identification, years later.
But this technology would go beyond anything that could be seen by the naked eye, scientists say.

In order for the process to work, parents would have to have their children's irises scanned and put onto an international database.
The cameras could then alert authorities if a missing person was brought through the checkpoints, which would be especially useful to stop international trafficking.

Breakthrough: The new eye-scanning technology will scan people's eyes from 40 feet away and is set to be used to help finding missing children
The technology could also be used by police to help catch criminals by allowing identification without having to come directly into contact with them.
The university lab was given a $1.5 million grant from the Department of Defense to develop the technology, which the U.S. military has used in Afghanistan and Iraq to help identify suspected terrorists.
It works in a similar fashion to fingerprints as a person's iris has a distinct pattern which doesn't change over time.

Hmmm, thinking

That's NOT what K McCann 'said' about Madeleine's 'good marketing ploy' eye, is it?

Madeleine's 'eye' pattern went from having 'a full blown, super distinctive, coloboma', to 'a mere, insignificant, 'fleck', you'd (struggled to) hardly 'see', according to KM. (P Morgan 'interview?)

Certainly NOT from 40 (FORTY) feet away!

Not sure how this would work in reality, as for under £15 you can by fashion contact lenses http://www.eyesbright.com/
