The first version of the solution was released last year and allows drivers already registered in the application to use their smartphones as a key to open the car safely. This year the companies announced the introduction of a new digital driver registration process. This process combines with facial recognition technology, will be implemented in the EasyOpen solution.
This solution uses the smartphone to create the identity of the driver when registering identification documents in a fast and compatible way to the user while granting access to the car later through a selfie, thanks to the solution of facial recognition of Idemia.
According to a study by Frost & Sullivan , the number of car-sharing users is expected to increase by 16.4% CAGR by 2025. The uses of private cars will then decline and car rental agencies will need high-performance technologies, in order to give security to shared cars.
By combining increased security with added convenience, we are making the user experience even simpler in this promising car-sharing market,” explains Yves Portalier, Executive Vice President, Connected Objects Business at Idemia.
“The keyless car will reveal a new era of Shared Mobility by simplifying the driver’s path and enabling operators to offer a simple and reliable solution,” adds Giuseppe Zuco, Executive Director at Omoove and co-founder of Octo Telematics.
