It’s all about you: The integration of biometrics into autonomous vehicles
Our latest white paper addresses the planned and actual use of biometrics—the measurement of unique human physiological and behavioral characteristics — in today’s (and tomorrow’s) vehicles. This White Paper explores the legal issues raised by the increased use of biometrics in cars and how to manage the risk that they raise for vehicle developers, manufacturers and operators. It explores eight countries (US, Australia, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey) and their impact on biometric use.
