Car handle fingers criminals

Hitachi has developed a finger-vein-detecting security system for use on car door handles and steering wheels.

When a hand grips the car handle, the unit captures an image of the dorsal vein patterns on the outside of the finger. The results are compared to records of vein patterns of registered vehicle users.


The handle has been designed so that the same part of the finger is always placed in contact with the vein-detecting unit.

The company claims that the technology has a high accuracy rate and could provide drivers with a keyless entry and ignition system.
