ECG Biometrics – The Definitive Biometric Technology for Auto
The ability to support a range of connected car applications means that some biometric modalities are better suited for in-car integration and Goode Intelligence’s research has identified heartbeat (ECG) as a strong contender for being integrated by auto OEMs inside the car.
As biometric technology moves beyond authentication, biometric modalities that can support multiple use cases and applications, such as heartbeat, will become more attractive than a single use modality such as fingerprint.
ECG biometric technology is an ideal modality for auto as it supports multiple use cases and applications.
The heart rate biometric also offers flexibility for auto OEMs in terms of how it is deployed, ranging from being used on a wearable device for car access control to being embedded into a car’s steering wheel to support identification and health, wellness and wellbeing (HWW) applications including:
- Heart rate
- Cardiac insights
ECG Biometrics - the Next Generation for Driving Innovation
IoT and auto OEMs are turning to heartbeat biometric technology to support a range of applications including secure vehicle access control, in-car identification to start the vehicle and access personalised services, enabling in-car payments and providing medical feedback to prevent accidents.
Supporting all of these use cases cannot be singularly achieved through non-heartbeat biometric modalities, paving the way for ECG biometrics to enhance our future driving experience.
