Analog Devices collaborated with B-Secur to develop a complete biometric authentication solution to be used in automotive vehicles. The combination of Analog Devices’ signal conditioning technology with B-Secur’s electrocardiogram (ECG) biometric algorithms software will enable automobiles to uniquely authenticate and identify drivers and passengers. The technology is designed to detect driver readiness and wellness by monitoring the driver’s vital signs for any irregularities. In addition, the ECG identification capability can be used to access many more features such as vehicle entry, immobilizer deactivation, infotainment personalization and online payments for ride sharing usage and personalized insurance payments.
“B-Secur’s ECG biometric technology can not only quickly and securely verify identity, but also turn the data into meaningful insights on driver/passenger wellness, including stress and drowsiness,” said Ben Carter, chief commercial officer, B-Secur. “We are delighted to collaborate with Analog Devices to help make the world a safer place with ECG biometrics, securing human and technology interaction at its heart.”
