  • Internet Enabled Digital Photography 

    Corcoran, Peter M.; Bigioi, Petronel; Steinberg, Eran (IEEE, 1999)
    The principles and concepts of Internet Enabled Digital Photography are outlined. The design and implementation of an interface appliance to connect digital cameras to the Internet is described. In ...
  • The Internet of Things: why now, and what's next? 

    Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2016-01)
    The technology to connect "things" to the Internet has existed for more than 20 years, so if we take a look back at recent history, we might well be tempted to ask the question "Why now" In this article, I address that ...
  • Introducing the IEEE Biometrics Compendium: Insight into the current issue. 

    Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2014-01)
    IEEE biometrics compendium is the first IEEE virtual journal, which is a collection of previously published IEEE papers in specific scientific and technical disciplines paired with value-added commentary from technology ...
  • Investigation of histology region in dielectric measurements of heterogeneous tissues 

    Porter, Emily; O'Halloran, Martin (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-08-17)
    The dielectric properties of tissues are the key parameters in electromagnetic medical technologies. Despite the apparent simplicity of the dielectric measurement process, reported data have been inconsistent for heterogeneous ...
  • Iris authentication in handheld devices - considerations for constraint-free acquisition 

    Corcoran, Peter; Bigioi, Petronel; Thavalengal, Shejin (IEEE, 2015-05)
    As a near ideal biometric, iris authentication is widely used and mobile acquisition techniques are known. But iris acquisition on handheld imaging devices, such as smartphones, poses multiple, unique challenges. In this ...
