Idemia, a leader in augmented identity, and Omoove announced they have implemented facial recognition technology on EasyOpen, allowing the shared mobility tech providers to securely enroll and authenticate drivers prior to EasyOpen automatically opening vehicles.

The first version of the solution was launched last year and allows drivers, who have already registered on the application, to use their smartphones as a key to open their cars in a secure way.

This solution uses the smartphone to create the identity of the driver by registering ID documents in a fast and user-friendly way, while afterwards granting access to the car through a selfie thanks to Idemia’s facial recognition solution.

According to a study run by Frost & Sullivan, car sharing users number should increase by 16.4% by 2025; private car usage will then decrease and car rental agencies will need high performing technologies to secure shared cars.

A demonstration of EasyOpen will take place at the Mobile World Congress 2018, Feb. 26 – March 1 in Barcelona. 

End-to-end customer journey from registration on car rental application to opening of the car thanks to a selfie will be presented on this occasion on a Maserati Levante.
