EyeLock LLC, a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, announced that it will showcase its award-winning technology in automotive applications in the VOXX International booth at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place January 6-9, 2016. VOXX International (NASDAQ: VOXX) acquired a majority interest in EyeLock in September 2015.
At CES, EyeLock will demonstrate a proof of concept that validates the driver and authorizes the start of a vehicle. EyeLock's iris identity authentication technology can be easily integrated across various automotive applications providing unprecedented security and personalization. In addition to secured access and vehicle start, EyeLock's iris authentication can also offer individual user certainty as well as a fully customized driving experience with personalized driver settings including seat and mirror positions, radio presets, and other features.
Once integrated into the vehicle, the authentication process takes less than five seconds to complete and is as simple as looking in the mirror. This solution can also provide benefits for usage based insurance applications as well as fleet management. Fleet operators will be able to provide a safe and secure environment knowing only authenticated drivers are behind the wheel.
"This technology brings an entirely new level of security, personalization, and connectivity to the automotive space," said Anthony Antolino, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer for EyeLock LLC. "We continue to work with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) to accelerate the adoption of EyeLock technology in a wide range of vehicles."
EyeLock was recently recognized by MotorTrend as Among the Top in AutoTech at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
