2004

Discovery

Big moment – verifies that in multiple corneal readings, no two subjects shared the same corneal contour - “every cornea is different”

Discovery

Realisation that the tear film over the Cornea displayed the Browning effect and would reflect measurements with minute differences. Leads to the discovery of the Cornea biometric as the natural, ever changing one-time-PIN

2005-6

Achievement

Worked though refinement and resubmitted research to Professor Schwiegerling – achieved 0% FMR and FRR - 100% accuracy based on 1048 maps

Milestone

Stephen sells successful practice and focusses on biometric device development

2007

Breakthrough

Ongoing work to capture the value in the ever-changing Corneal measures – reaffirming the importance of a biometric that never exactly renders the same data twice (the one time pin)

2008-13

Milestone

COMET Grant from the Federal Gov – Third round investment. Kim Carr (Minister for Trade and Investment) announces the grant

2014

Breakthrough

Designed, developed and built the miniaturized version of WBT’s ‘webcam’ style device utilizing a multi-modal approach of iris and corneal features. The aim was a device mounted on a hand-held platform/tablet PC

Milestone

Live trials hosted at University of Tennessee on many hundreds of subjects and three iterations of the technology returned a low EER of 0.85%
