BASF subsidiary trinamiX has formed a partnership with Spain-based Grupo Antolin to integrate facial biometrics for driver authentication into the latter’s product portfolio.
Grupo Antolin is a global developer of car interior technologies and will integrate trinamiX facial authentication into the vehicle wrap to confirm the identity of the driver when approaching the vehicle.
TrinamiX Face Authentication provides robust, patent-protected biometrics with liveness detection based on skin analysis, as described in a reference design developed through collaboration with Qualcomm.
The agreement extends trinamiX’s biometric technology beyond smartphones, where it is offered for on-screen authentication solutions.
“Grupo Antolin and trinamiX share a common goal: to provide consumers around the world with increased comfort and safety,” says Wilfried Hermes, Business Development Manager at trinamiX. “We are happy to collaborate with an experienced partner who can bring in-depth knowledge and a strong network on this exciting path.”
The integrated technologies will be offered to OEMs in the automotive sector.
The combined software and hardware solution provides strong data protection and optimal performance, according to the partners, with low hardware requirements for easy integration.
“By integrating biometric solutions into our components, we can offer our customers value-added systems that combine lighting, electronics and smart surfaces with facial authentication,” emphasizes Marta Cuevas, Grupo Antolin Lighting and HMI Business Unit Manager. “trinamiX face authentication has proven to be reliable in maintaining its high performance even under particularly difficult conditions. This reliable performance is what makes the solution the perfect addition to our innovative and growing portfolio. »
According to Polaris forecasts, the global automotive biometrics market is expected to approach $700 million by 2028.
