Automotive biometric is an electronic component that identifies individuals by their physiological and behavioral characteristics. The biometric system verifies and provides access to the automotive controls, for example, fingerprint recognition at the door/steering wheel or voice recognition by microphone inside of vehicle. After gaining the required data, the biometric system analyzes the current inputs with its existing records and then complete access is provided to the vehicle's owner.
The need for increased safety is the major factor driving growth of the automotive biometric access system market. The biometric asks for biological evidences such as fingerprint scan, facial recognition and voice recognition, which increases the level of safety.
A biometric access system does not ask for a password, making it more difficult to be hacked or stolen. In addition, biometric systems are easier and faster with respect to the operating pace. Some car manufacturers plan to incorporate the biometric system in cars for the safety and convenience of customers.
Biometric authenticated vehicles will also be able to automatically adjust the seats, mirrors, music and GPS after having recognized the user, thereby, personalizing the entire driving experience. As the car gets into adjusting its features, drivers can focus more on driving and minimize distractions.
Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,450 lives in 2016 alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The biometric based systems can also note driver’s blood pressure, heart rate and other vitals to detect, if the driver is impaired in any way. The vehicle will then, engage automatic assistance to prevent accidents.
You are probably already familiar with fingerprint recognition, if you have a smartphone. But, face, iris and pulse sensors are on the fast track for the next step in biometrics. The multi-modal user authentication in the Internet of Things is not expected to be a fading trend, but a security norm.
According to the Automotive Biometric Market survey report, the market is expected to witness a relatively higher growth rate during the forecast period of 2018-2023. Moreover, Global Market Insights stated that the automotive market for gesture recognition will grow by 42 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate to surpass $13 billion by 2024.
Both the automobile and tech industries are working cohesively towards deploying the appropriate biometric solutions in the automobile industry. Biometric details will also be used with connected cars and other technologies that will be crucial in a connected car environment in the years to come.
The market is segmented based on technology, type and country. Technology is further divided into fingerprint scan, voice recognition, face recognition and others. Based on the vehicle type, it is classified as passenger car or commercial vehicles.
