Delta ID brings its iris scanning technology for driver authentication to CES

 

Delta ID has collaborated with Gentex to develop an iris-based in-car biometrics system that authenticates the driver and delivers customized security and convenience features.

This week at CES, the companies are demonstrating a Gentex rearview mirror integrated with Delta ID’s Active IRIS technology. The mirror-integrated biometric system identifies the driver upon vehicle entry, and, if properly authorized, starts the vehicle and personalizes their setup configurations by automatically adjusting mirrors, steering wheel, seat, music favorites, GPS locations, and other options.

“We believe driver identification will play a critical role in car sharing, in-car payment and the autonomous driving space,” said Steve Downing, Senior Vice President at Gentex Corporation. “Delta ID’s proven iris scanning technology combined with Gentex’s display-integrated rearview mirrors will bring fast, reliable and secure iris scanning to build these use cases and enhance the in-cabin experience for the cars of the future.”

According to a company statement, both firms believe the iris is the right modality for in-car biometric identification and authentication, and rearview mirrors are the right place to integrate iris. The integrated solution provides a high level of security along with convenience and reliability of use. The companies envision their joint offerings to enable novel use cases in the cars of the future.

“We believe iris scanner integrated rearview mirrors provide auto drivers with both higher security and convenience of touchless identification and authentication,” said Salil Prabhakar, president and CEO of Delta ID. “Gentex has been leading the advancements in rearview mirrors in the industry. It has been a privilege to work with Gentex in designing and developing this novel solution that may end up changing the way we interact with our cars forever,” he added.
