EyeLock announced it will demonstrate its EyeLock ID technology integrated in a 3D printed automobile designed and developed by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory at this week’s 2015 North America International Auto Show in Detroit.
EyeLock’s iris identity authentication technology — which analyzes more than 240 points in each eye — is being used to validate the driver and authorize the start of the vehicle.
“The utilization of EyeLock’s iris authentication solutions across automotive applications enables a contextual and immersive experience for the driver, while unlocking new ways for automakers, content providers and insurers to engage consumers,” said Anthony Antolino, chief marketing and business development officer at EyeLock.
EyeLock’s technology integrates into existing automotive architectures provide access to the vehicle with unprecedented security and individual user certainty as well as a fully personalized driving experience.
The iris authentication technology enables automobile manufacturers to provide users with a secure and effective way to start a vehicle, customize driving settings, entertainment, telematics and other in-vehicle experiences.
“Integrating new technologies into our 3D printed automobile helps us to showcase examples of innovation in the automotive industry,” explained Dr. Lonnie Love, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. “Coupling new ways of manufacturing with biometrics solutions shows the spectrum of what’s possible today with customized driving experiences.”
EyeLock’s myris solution can be integrated into consumer-oriented devices at scale without affecting the technology’s accuracy or ease-of-use.
Using myris, consumers can ultimately prevent potential password breaches and security issues.
Previously reported, EyeLock signed a licensing deal with Wistron NeWeb to embed EyeLock’s patented iris authentication technology into various consumer and enterprise devices for applications across PCs, set-top boxes, network devices and automotive sectors.
