A Development and Evaluation of Optimal Fingerprint Authentication Algorithm in Vehicle Use Environment 2020-01-0723

Hyundai Motor Company mass-produced the world's first fingerprint entry and start system. This paper is a study on the evaluation method to develop and verify the optimal fingerprint authentication algorithm for vehicle usage conditions.
Currently, fingerprint sensors and algorithms in the IT industry have been developed for the electronic devices, and are not suitable for the harsh environment of the vehicle and the vehicle life cycle for more than 10 years. In order to optimize the fingerprint sensor and algorithm for the vehicle, this study consisted of 3way test methods. As a result, the fingerprint system could be optimized for the vehicle and the recognition rate and security could be optimized according to the sensor authentication level.
Through this study, the door handle recognition rate was improved by 25% and the start button recognition rate by 10%, and the fingerprint entry and start system was mass-produced with security level that satisfies the immobilizer regulations.
