  • biometric to start car

    Hey,

    I've just started thinking about this, anyone have any ideas as to how it might be accomplished? I suppose the computer would have to be kept in hibernation mode, but I'm not sure exactly how you would accomplish starting the car when a specific fingerprint is scanned.

    any ideas?

    you would need a low power computer running at all times, or at least a switch that would turn on the computer as soon as you put your thumb on the scanner. Also you would probably want to have a normal egnition somewhere in the car in case someone at a shop or something needs to turn it on when you aren't there. I have seen add-ons for computers that can do this for loggin on to your computer, I'm sure it can't be too hard.

      Purely eye candy, but, How about a small piece of flexi plastic, with a thumb print on it.

      All it is connected to is a momentary switch behind the thumbprint picture. Also maybe wire up an Led behind the plastic, so it lights when you thumb it.

      Pure eye candy, but might look cool

        ok, this wont boot the PC via biometrics but it will provide security via biometrics...

          That looks nice.

          If a PC was suspended/ in hibernation, can you get Wake on USB as part of the Bios? That might be useful for that purpose.

          What the PC, then check the authentication.

            well I think I can have the USB bring it out of hibernation, the hard part (IMO) is how to have it trip a relay or somthing that would start the car.

              you could use a PC relay card. I could modify the software that I wrote to have a password for certain relays, which is how that biometric computer security stuff works I think.

                  Wouldn't you need a computer on all the time for that to work?

                    what I'm hoping is to have the computer in hibernation/standby so it would wake up when the finger is scanned.

                    Anyone know how those drunk driver breathalyzer car things works? I've seen it as a punishment for drunk drivers where the car won't start unless the breathalyzer passes.

                      I would think they do since their is alot of cases where they get in more trouble because they have their kids blow into it so they can go driving.
