Throughout 2019, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV will incorporate a modern and interesting system of fingerprints through which you can open the doors and start without using the keys. Here you have all the details.
Hyundai Motor reveals the new technology of fingerprints that will be applied for the first time in one of its star SUV, the new Santa Fe.
Throughout the first quarter of 2019, the Hyundai Santa Fe will be incorporating in some markets of the world this novel system of opening the vehicle and starting it by fingerprint recognition, without the need to use the key to perform such tasks.
2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Finger Print Technology
To open the vehicle, the driver of the Hyundai Santa Fe SUV should only place one finger on the sensor located on the door. This sensor reads and analyzes the fingerprint and sends this information to the fingerprint controller of the vehicle. Once the door is opened, the vehicle can be started using the power button, which is also equipped with a fingerprint scan sensor.
The fingerprint driver of the Hyundai Santa Fe also stores information related to the position of the seats, the angle of placement of the exterior mirrors and connectivity features, so when you press the power button of the vehicle will automatically establish all the driver ‘s preferences previously stored.
” In the future, Hyundai Motor plans to further expand these technologies to allow for temperature adjustment, steering wheel position and many other features that will suit the driver’s preferences. These advances will provide a quality driving experience for all and Each of Hyundai’s customers” said Albert Biermann, President, and Director of Research and Development Division of the Hyundai Motor Company.
The fingerprint technology that Hyundai has developed includes the capacitance recognition system , which detects differentials in the electrical level of various parts of the fingertip (up to five times more effective than conventional vehicle keys, including keys smart).
In addition to this interesting technology, the new 7-seater Hyundai Santa Fe SUV also stands out for its high level of safety , to the point that in 2018 it became one of the safest SUVs on the market, according to the Euro NCAP test, surpassing to other SUVs of the size of the VW Touareg and the BMW X5 ( see article with the safest SUVs of 2018, according to Euro NCAP ).
