VW and Rimac show off concept cars featuring biometrics at Geneva Motor Show

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News

Volkswagon has previewed an autonomous-driving electric concept car with artificial intelligence and biometric passenger recognition, controlled entirely through gesture recognition and voice commands, New Atlas reports.

The company is showing the I.D. Vizzon at the Geneva Motor Show. It features a “virtual host,” which adapts the car’s interior settings to its passengers after identifying them with biometrics. It does not include a steering wheel or pedals, but provides a HoloLens augmented reality headset and an augmented reality screen for information and entertainment which takes up most of the windscreen, according to New Atlas.

Biometrics also enable passengers to communicate with the car’s AI to adjust climate settings, and communicate about travel and destination information. A version of the I.D. Vizzon is expected to reach production in 2022.

Also at the show, Croatian carmaker Rimac Automobili is debuting its Concept Two electric “hypercar,” which unlocks and starts with facial recognition and goes 0-60 mph in 1.85 seconds, The Verge reports. The Rimac Concept Two also features autonomous driving capabilities and a top speed of 258 mph. The company plans to build 150 of them, after selling 8 units of its predecessor.
