Hyundai will build a fingerprint scanner in Santa Fe

Hyundai will integrate fingerprint scanners into the door handle and engine start button of the new Santa Fe. First, the technology will appear on cars for the Chinese market, and later will be available on cars for other countries.

By putting a finger to the scanner, the owner of the car will be able to unlock the doors, as well as start the engine. In accordance with the saved settings, chairs and exterior mirrors will automatically adjust. In the future, the profile of the air conditioner and the position of the steering wheel will change according to the fingerprint. Hyundai claims that the probability of a system hacking is 1 in 50,000 – the technology is five times safer than the traditional smart key.

To counteract the cracking developed by Hyundai, the scanner captures the potential difference of the electric field between the tubercles and the depressions of the papillary pattern. Due to the fact that the sensor is placed on the glass panel, it is almost impossible to remove a copy from the prints.

In the spring, Bentley built a fingerprint scanner into the small storage compartment located on the central tunnel of the Bentayga SUV. In memory of a biometric sensor embedded in the cover, you can simultaneously record multiple prints.
