Gesture Biometrics

Consumers eye contactless biometric control of in-vehicle operating systems

Implications - Considered the next wave of biometric technology, gesture biometrics empower consumers with contactless control of their devices and vehicles. Rather than merely facilitating gesture-based authentication to gain access, such applications of the technology enable drivers to make various systematic changes using only movement as communication. In addition to highlighting the progression toward a totally unobtrusive relationship between consumers and their technology, this shift also highlights the industry-spanning implications of developments in biometric science.
Workshop Question - What is one standard of your industry that is being disrupted by technology? How are you reacting?
