Is Biometrics the answer to the rising trends of car-jacking and vehicle key-related crime?

Milton Keynes 17th March 2004 - "Vehicle security development has reached an important milestone. The use of immobiliser systems fitted to new vehicles has caused a change in theft techniques used by car thieves, and has resulted in a significant increase in the number of vehicles stolen using the original vehicle keys. A variety of methods are now being used to obtain the original keys, including deception, fraud, burglary, and direct force."

The increasing use of immobiliser systems has caused a change in theft techniques used by car thieves, resulting in a significant increase in the number of vehicles stolen using the original vehicle keys. The challenge facing the vehicle security industry is how to prevent this theft method. So how can we verify that it is the genuine vehicle owner who is using the vehicle key?

One possible solution to this verification problem is the use of biometric technologies.

This report investigates the application of biometrics within the automotive security industry. Four of the most developed technologies: fingerprint, iris, face and voice recognition, are analysed and compared against key factors such as cost, security, application and customer acceptance.

According to data from insurers in Holland, close to 80% of thefts of cars under 6 years old involved the theft of the car keys. The British Crime Survey 2001 puts this figure at 53% for the UK.

The challenge facing the vehicle security industry is how to prevent these theft methods. Some additional verification of the user is required to ensure that it is the genuine vehicle owner who is using the vehicle key.

One possible solution to this verification problem is the use of biometric technologies and this study investigates their application within the arena of vehicle security.

Who could benefit from buying this report? - Vehicle Manufacturers Can this technology enhance your vehicles? Which type of biometric solution offers the easiest practical implementation and why? What other factors must be considered? - Automotive Suppliers Is biometrics on your product portfolio? Should it be? What are the issues facing automotive manufacturers that you would be expected to have the answers to? - Biometric vendors Have you considered automotive security applications? Do you understand the implications?

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
