Fingerprint Cards debuts automotive industry compliant touch sensor


Fingerprint Cards today announced the launch of its first automotive version of touch sensor FPC1021AP. The Swedish biometrics company notes that the capacitive fingerprint sensor meets rigorous automotive industry standards and is AEC-Q100 compliant.

“This launch is an important step in bringing the benefits of biometric solutions to the automotive industry,” explained Thomas Rex, SVP Business Line Smartcards, Embedded & Automotive. “Millions already enjoy the added convenience and security of biometrics in other areas, and we are now ready to enable this in their vehicles as well.”

FPC1021AP has undergone extensive testing and verification, and the product is now ready for mass production and integration in vehicles in collaboration with leading module manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers to automotive OEMs. The first automotive product development projects integrating FPC1021AP are expected to begin during 2019.

Earlier this year Fingerprint Cards announced a partnership with Altran Technologies, SA to offer biometric solutions for the automotive industry. At the time FPC said it will offer its fingerprint and iris recognition technology to be used in a wide range of different use cases in automotive vehicles. The company cited personalization, access control and payments as some examples of where biometrics offer a simple and secure identification in automotive applications.

More smartphone deployments

This week OPPO introduced four new smartphones featuring FPC fingerprint sensors. The OPPO Realme 2, OPPO F9 and OPPO F9 Pro include the FPC1229 sensor and the OPPO F7 features the FPC1228 sensor.
