Genesis is stepping it up for automakers worldwide with its latest innovation. The new Genesis Face Connect technology uses biometric information to let you seamlessly interact with your vehicle.
The new tech utilizes a Near Infra-Red (NIR) camera to recognize human faces in any weather, including rain and snow, and even at night. Built to make the driving experience even more customizable, the Face Connect technology can let you open and close the doors without using a smart key. This means you can enjoy outdoor activities without worrying about finding a place to carry keys.
Face Connect has the ability to register two faces for each vehicle, and new profiles can be safely registered and deleted using voice assistant. An additional biometric option for Genesis vehicles is the Fingerprint Authentication System, which lets you start the vehicle using fingerprint recognition.
To ensure that this new technology is always up-to-date, Genesis has expanded its OTA Software Update that wirelessly updates features. Previously, only the Head-Up Display, navigation, and digital cluster could be updated via OTA. But now, this tech has spread to other components of Genesis vehicles, including the steering wheel, airbags, brakes, suspension, and an integrated control device.
It’s so exciting to see all of this cutting-edge updates from Genesis. To learn more about these new features, which are expected to be implemented on the new GV60 — or the already available Genesis Digital Key technology — reach out to our team at Genesis Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
