Incoming Genesis GV60 EV will debut with face recognition tech that scans your face to lock and unlock the doors.
The biometric face-scanning system on the GV60 lets you unlock and enter the EV without a key.
It features a Near Infra-Red (NIR) camera on the B-pillar designed to work in all lighting conditions.
The Face Connect system will also make its way across Genesis current lineup of vehicles.
Hyundai luxury division, Genesis, has announced that the incoming 2022 GV60 electric Crossover will arrive with a facial recognition technology that will allow owners to open and close their car doors without using keyfob.
Dubbed the ‘Face Connect’, the biometric face-scanning system features a Near Infra-Red (NIR) camera on the B-pillar that is designed to work in all lighting conditions, including at night and in stormy weather.
In addition, this face detection system will also be able to apply settings like the seating position, steering wheel height, side mirror positioning and infotainment settings, upon recognizing your face.
The Face Connect system will initially be available for the 2022 GV60, but the South Korean automaker said the system will also make its way across its current lineups.
In addition to the industry first, Genesis says the GV60 will also has a new fingerprint authentication system that allows drivers to start the vehicle using a biometric scanner. The fingerprint scanner can also used for in-car payments and to disable valet mode.
The GV60 comes with plethora of features, including a wireless inductive charging like in the 2019 BMW 530e PHEV. The wireless charger takes GV60’s batteries to full in six hours, which is four hours faster than using a wall charger.
