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?

Industry after industry is under siege as companies embrace digital transformation (DX) to disrupt existing business models and disintermediate their competitor’s customer relationships. But what do we mean by “Digital Transformation”? The coupling of granular, real-time data (e.g., smartphones, connected devices, smart appliances, wearables, mobile commerce, video surveillance) with modern technologies (e.g., cloud native apps, big data architectures, hyper-converged technologies, artificial intelligence, blockchain) to enhance products, processes, and business-decision making with customer, product and operational insights.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
