Hyundai develops fingerprint tech to unlock and start cars.
This is the first time ever this kind of biometric technology has ever been built into a vehicles’ door handle.
Hyundai’s method to adding fingerprint technology uses human’s capacitance; the reader differentiates between the electricity levels in various parts of the finger to prevent hacking or forged fingerprints. The reader has an error rate of 1 in 50,000.
There will be a fingerprint reader in the door handle that will send the encrypted data to the system and unlock the car.
There will also be an option to start your new Hyundai with your fingerprint.
Owners will have to registers their fingerprint data for their vehicle.
Currently the feature is only available in China however it’ll be available to US coming soon!
