Car Access Using Multimodal Biometrics


  • Catalin LUPU

    () (“Stefan cel Mare” University of Suceava, Romania)


This paper presents the use of multimodal biometrics in order to identify or to verify a person that wants to start the engine of a car. First of all, a fingerprint sensor is posted on the car’s door, one on the steering wheel, a camera for iris recognition on the car's main mirror, and finally a microphone for voice recognition. There are two possibilities: if the person is identified as the car owner or a known user, then he/she can take control over the car; if it’s an intruder, the car can announce the security service or the police using a complex GPRS system.
