A collaboration to develop a complete biometric authentication solution for use in automotive vehicles has been announced between Analog Devices (ADI) and B-Secur.
The combination of ADI’s leading signal conditioning technology with B-Secur’s electrocardiogram (ECG) biometric algorithms software will enable automobiles to uniquely authenticate and identify drivers and passengers.
The technology is designed to detect driver readiness and wellness by monitoring the driver’s vital signs for any irregularities. In addition, the ECG identification capability can be used to access features such as vehicle entry, immobiliser deactivation, infotainment personalisation and online payments for ridesharing usage, personalised insurance payments and more.
Ben Carter, chief commercial officer, B-Secur, stated: “B-Secur’s ECG biometric technology can not only quickly and securely verify identity, but also turn the data into meaningful insights on driver/passenger wellness, including stress and drowsiness. We are delighted to collaborate with Analog Devices to help make the world a safer place with ECG biometrics, securing human and technology interaction at its heart.”
