You know how we come across or hear about new revolutionary technology almost every day. Autonomous cars, vehicle automation, inductive charging, to name a few. What if I told you soon there will be a technology that will allow you to start your car with a scan of your eyes instead of the ignition switch? As unbelieveable as that sounds, a New York-based company that provides advanced iris based identity management technology solutions - EyeLock - is working on an iris identity authentication technology to validate the driver and authorise the start of the vehicle.
EyeLock's technology looks at over 240 points in each eye, and the vehicle starts only after the scan is matched to the driver's iris template. One of the only companies in the world to utilize dual-eye authentication, this tech integrates into existing automotive architectures to provide access to the vehicle with unprecedented security and individual user certainty as well as a fully personalised driving experience.
Anthony Antolino, chief marketing and business development officer, EyeLock, said, "EyeLock's technology is proven to have broad applications across the spectrum of consumer touchpoints and enterprise solutions. The utilization of EyeLock's iris authentication solutions across automotive applications enables a contextual and immersive experience for the driver, while unlocking new ways for automakers, content providers and insurers to engage consumers."
EyeLock debuted the first PC with EyeLock ID at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, and will now will showcase its EyeLock ID technology integrated in a 3D printed automobile at the 2015 North America International Auto Show.
