Genesis Introduces Face Connect Tech for Unlocking Vehicle Doors

Genesis Technology, Toronto, ON

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.

Meet 3 of the Coolest New Genesis GV80 Tech Features

2021 Genesis GV80 | Toronto, ON

As the first Genesis SUV, the 2021 GV80 has been designed to make a big impression. That’s especially true of its technologies. From smart safety systems to innovations that will help you stay more comfortable on the go, here are three of the coolest new GV80 tech features.

Remote Smart Parking

The GV80’s Remote Smart Parking makes Toronto parking easy. In fact, you don’t even have to be in the vehicle to do so. This system controls the steering wheel, vehicle speed, and gear shift automatically — it can even be controlled with your key from outside the vehicle.

Ergo Motion Seat

Designed with seven air cells inside, the Ergo Motion Seat provides the right side support you need depending on your driving mode and vehicle speed. This helps minimize fatigue and keep you comfortable on the go.

Highway Driving Assist II

This automated system makes highway driving easier, controlling your speed and keeping you in your lane. It monitors the distance between you and the car in front of you, keeping a safe speed and distance. The system will even bring you to a full stop and restart when the car in front of you moves.
