Norton Rose Fulbright’s fourth annual autonomous vehicle white paper addresses the planned and actual use of biometrics – the measurement of unique human physiological and behavioral characteristics – in today’s and tomorrow’s vehicles.

The automotive industry is increasingly incorporating biometric technologies for both security and convenience into their vehicles, especially for the next generation of autonomous vehicles.

With this rapid embrace of biometrics comes significant concerns relating to protecting the privacy of individuals. Only a few states have passed laws regulating the collection and security of biometric data. Uniformity of regulations, however, is lacking. 

Although each developer believes that their particular technologies should be embraced by its marketplace, the field continues to evolve, and customer preferences are still very much undefined.

Companies, therefore, have sought and continue to seek to protect their innovations through the panoply of intellectual property rights, most specifically patent rights, that will allow them to preclude unauthorized users from taking their hard earned market share.

This whitepaper explores the legal issues raised by the increased use of biometrics in cars and how to manage the risk that they raise for vehicle developers, manufacturers, and operators. The paper explores the laws of eight countries and their impact on biometric use. Download your free copy now!
