The key to your car is your DNA
Fingerprint, palm, iris, voice, facial and gesture recognition will aid advances in driver-assistance systems and vehicle security, while incorporating cloud analytics will generate useful information and allow notifications to be sent during emergencies.
No more passwords
Biometrics have been used for decades by law enforcement and high-security facilities in their systems for identifying people and controlling access. These systems compare the behavioural and physical data which has been gathered and stored with the actual person wishing to gain access.
More recently, the scope has broadened to consumer markets. We can already access smartphones or tablets with a fingerprint or use voice recognition applications to authenticate online bank accounts.
Where standards fit in
IEC technical committees (TCs) and their subcommittees (SCs) produce International Standards for biometrics to help ensure reliability, quality and interoperability.
The Joint Technical Committee of the IEC and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO/IEC JTC 1, covers information technology. The scope of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37: Biometrics, includes specifications for the security, testing and reporting of different aspects such as data interchange formats, face image data, facial recognition, iris image data and voice command speech recognition.
A fingerprint could be the key to your car
As cars become more connected and move towards being fully self-driving, the automotive industry is riding this trend too. A report by Frost and Sullivan says that one in three cars (almost 34 million passenger vehicles) will be using biometrics for identification and personalization by 2025.
