Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced today a collaboration with B-Secur to develop a complete biometric authentication solution for use in automotive vehicles.
The combination of ADI’s leading signal conditioning technology with B-Secur’s ECG biometric algorithm software enables automobiles to uniquely authenticate and identify drivers and passengers.
The technology also detects 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.
“B-Secur offers the only biometric on the market today that can not only quickly and securely verify identity, but also turn the data into meaningful insights on driver/passenger wellness including stress and drowsiness,” said Ben Carter, CCO, B-Secur.
“We are delighted to partner with Analog Devices to help make the world a safer place with ECG biometrics, securing human and technology interaction at its heart.”Contact Ben
