Report Information

Full Product Description

Alan Goode, CEO & Chief Analyst, Goode Intelligence said “This emerging area is set to awake the wider market with many leading car OEMs planning to launch top-of-the-range vehicles supporting biometrics from 2018. This in turn represents significant opportunity for those supplying biometric hardware and software to the auto industry – for many different applications, not just security.

“As cars evolve into smartphones on wheels, the automotive industry is facing stiff competition from new entrants such as Tesla and the possibility that technology giants Apple and Google will again disrupt another market. Identity becomes a key battleground for this market and, as with the mobile industry, biometrics is fast becoming the easiest way for people to prove their identity across a wide-range of end-points including the connected car."

The report examines in detail the rising level of activity in this growing market including:
• The benefits of using biometrics in the auto market
• The technologies that will dominate
• Disruptive business practices that biometrics could enable
• The effect of regulation on the market
• The sectors that will see the biggest growth
• The vendors set to dominate the market
• Opportunities for investment

The report identifies the following seven key applications and use cases for biometrics for the connected car:
1. Vehicle entry using:
I. Smartphone
II. Wearable
III. Key fob
IV. External cameras

2. Engine start using:
I. Starter button
II. Button-less using biometric sensors embedded in the steering wheel

3. Personalisation:
I. Linked to engine ignition
II. Facial or ocular recognition using camera in dashboard or close to rear-view mirror
III. Voice through command centre
IV. Smart Mobile or Wearable Device interoperability

4. In-car payments:
I. Car detects the driver during set-up and may re-authenticate using biometric method; Ocular, Face, Voice or ECG
II. Supports drive-through restaurants, petrol stations, electricity recharge points and road tolls

5. Insurance:
I. Car detects the driver and can feed this to ‘black-box’ insurance systems or data created and passed on to insurance companies in the event of an accident
II. Could also be used by law enforcement in the event of a traffic accident or other incident/felony

6. Health, wellness and well-being (HWW):
I. Support for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems [ADAS]
II. Continuous monitoring for tiredness, illness and intoxication through face, ocular, ECG and EEG biometrics

7. Car to Home Automation:
I. Control of home automation systems and link to the wider IoT world
