November 18, 2016 UAE Business 0
Tremendous growth opportunities arise as automakers partner with technology providers, finds Frost & Sullivan’s Intelligent Mobility team Advancements in biometrics will radically transform the driving experience, health wellness and wellbeing (HWW), and security of vehicles by 2025. As one in three new passenger vehicles begin to feature fingerprint recognition, iris recognition, voice recognition, gesture recognition, heart beat monitoring, brain wave monitoring, stress detection, fatigue monitoring, eyelid monitoring, facial monitoring, and pulse detection. These will be driven by built-in, brought-in and cloud enabled technologies, the automotive biometrics ecosystem will surge ahead. Major automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 suppliers must stay abreast of technologies, business models, and regulations shaping this dynamic space.

“Partnerships between automotive OEMs and wearable companies will result in faster penetration of biometrics within the automotive industry , allowing OEM’s to save on biometrics related R&D expenditure, while creating growth avenues for wearables companies” said Frost & Sullivan’s Intelligent Mobility Analyst. “New business models such as device as a service and health as a service will also emerge.”
 
The Biometrics in the Global Automotive Industry, 2016–2025 analysis, a part of Frost & Sullivan’s Automotive & Transportation Growth Partnership Service program, finds that OEMs and suppliers are investing in advanced biometrics based on human machine interaction (HMI) concepts such as natural language and gesture recognition.
