The unlocking of vehicles through the veins of our hand seems to be part of the future thanks to this patent.
Technology in unlocking vehicles has advanced a lot, going from the typical key to more recent methods such as induction, nfc or remote control through an application, but things will go further.
Now the BYD company has registered a patent that takes security to the maximum, through the use of biometric technology of vein recognition.
This new patented BYD vein recognition technology enhances the user experience.
The patent application for a vein recognition device and vehicle has been authorized, it is a device that consists of three essential components: the infrared acquisition module, a vein recognition module and a power module, they point out from gizmochina.
On the one hand we have infrared acquisition modulewhich captures the image of the vein on the back of the user’s hand.
then there is the vein identification module connected to the infrared acquisition module, a component that identifies the characteristics of the veins, after receiving the image of the veins, and upon confirming the pattern, activates the gate control command.
finally the power supply modulewhich provides power to the other two modules.
This is how this patented device would work
This patented device works by identifying the veins on the back of the user’s hand, a big step since current BYD models employ NFC unlocking.
As you well know, NFC technology allows unlock the door of the car in the presence of a Bluetooth key, but it also has a series of limitations such as that it requires placing the device in a specific position to unlock the door.
It’s just a patent, but if it finally becomes effective and is present in all vehicles of the brand, will provide all its owners with greater comfort and safety.
