Fingerprint car automation project

Year: 2023

Presenter Name: Tensor Elmikawy

I wanted to make my 007 roadster a true James Bond car by giving it some automation and futuristic capabilities. One of these capabilities is this original Fingerprint car automation project that was self-funded and self-motivated. Because of the open-source nature of most development chips, I could connect fingerprint sensors and arrays or relays to a “Seeeduino” and an “ESP32” development chips (advanced Arduino-like boards) and then integrate such isolated embedded systems into my 007 roadster vehicle. As a result, I can arm, operate, and generally control the vehicle with my fingerprint or from my phone via the Apple HomeKit protocol. It is an inexpensive yet reliable solution and can be used in other applications besides personal transportation - like elevating home security, deposit box access, weapons security, etc.
