Smart Sensors has ported its MIRLIN Iris biometric recognition and matching algorithms to an Embedded Environment utilising MPC Data’s very latest Windows Embedded Compact 7 board support package for the BeagleBoard-xM, retaining full PC like accuracy and performance.
/> At Embedded World 2011, the company will be show casing an Access Control kit with embedded control board, Wiegand interface for door control and on-board database for up to 2000 users on MPC Data’s booth (Hall 12 Booth 363).

The system is based on a Texas Instruments DM3730 (ARM Cortex A8 CPU) with USB interface and running MPC Data’s latest Windows Embedded Compact 7 CTP BSP ( with integrated Vector Floating Point library. The Embedded System handles all camera control, image capture and iris recognition functions using embedded MIRLIN technology.

Secure access control is an important feature of everyday life, whether for use in boarding aircraft, entering an office building or even logging on to computing resources. Opening doors with Smart Sensors’ patented software and the Beagle Board reference design gives you supervision by a virtual security guard – the perfect solution for keyless and hands-free access control.

Neville Bulsara, MPC Data Business Development Manager, comments “We are committed to providing high quality off the shelf software products to the Embedded Industry allowing designers to focus on their core competence and get their designs moving quickly. The BSP allows developers to access, from the application layer, the peripherals of high end architectures, like the DM3730, using high quality drivers and frameworks designed by Windows Embedded Specialists - without having to worry about the low level driver code. We are delighted to partner with Smart Sensors and to host their product on our stand at Embedded World and show case our services for the embedded Security and Access Control industry”.3
