Motor Company has announced the world’s first smart fingerprint technology that
allows drivers to not only unlock doors but also start the vehicle. Hyundai
plans to implement the technology initially in Santa Fe SUV model that is to be
released in select markets on the first quarter of 2019.
unlock the vehicle, the driver needs to place a finger on the sensor located on
the door handle. The encrypted fingerprint information will be identified and
delivered to the fingerprint controller inside the vehicle. The driver can also
easily start the vehicle by touching the ignition that is also equipped with a
fingerprint scanning sensor.
technology also provides a customised driving environment. Matching information
of driver preference with fingerprint data, the vehicle automatically adjusts
seating positions, connected car features, and side-view mirror angles
according to the driver.
the future, Hyundai Motor plans to further expand the application of the
technology to allow the adjustment of temperature, steering wheel position, and
many other features which will be tailored to driver’s preferences” said Albert
Biermann, President and Head of Research & Development Division of the
Hyundai Motor Company, adding that “This will ultimately offer quality driving
experience to each and every Hyundai customer.”
also addressed the security issues on the smart fingerprint technology. With
capacitance recognition, which detects differentials in the electricity level
in various parts of the fingertip, the fingerprint technology efficiently
prevents forgeries and fake finger prints. The technology’s chance of
misrecognising other person’s finger print as the driver’s is only 1 in 50,000
making it five times more effective than conventional vehicle keys, including
smart keys. Moreover, through real-time learning of fingerprints supported by
‘dynamic update’ system, the fingerprint system can continually improve its success
will apply the fingerprint technology in select markets and gradually expand to
the other markets. Hyundai Motor also plans to continue to implement other
customisable technologies to vehicle lineup, to strengthen technological leadership
in the future mobility market.
