Ideally I should have patented this idea before releasing the same to general public, but I’m generous enough to throw it open.
This is a free idea from my side for anyone in automobile industry willing to implement.
What is this idea?
Introduce fingerprint ignition in bikes and eliminate the need for keys (or use in combination with conventional key)
Is it tough to implement?
I don’t think so. Fingerprint authentication is readily available in most of the notebook models, so the technology is available. To use it in bikes bike makers will have to design microprocessor controlled circuit completion mechanism which will either replace or complement current practice of completing the ignition circuit only when a particular key is used (levers will move and close the circuit only when a specific key is used) with fingerprint based circuit completion.
Technically this is achievable.
What do you achieve? (Benefits)
1. Swipe ur finger and start the bike-No need to carry keys.
2. Traffic cop will be helpless when he tries to remove the keys from your bike…
3. Safety for your bikes.
1. Each user will need to be configured to store his fingerprint in order to use the bike.
2. Mechanical devices are more reliable that softwares…If the fingerprint sensor stops working or malfunctions and you can not start the bike, everyone around will think you are trying to steal the bike…
3. Filmmakers across the globe will be in big trouble… Whenever hero needs a vehicle in the middle of nowhere, these filmmakers ensure that someone has parked his bike somewhere nearby and usually is little away from scene, releasing excess body liquid, so that hero can steal the bike. With fingerprint authentication, these heroes will be in trouble.
Comment in your ideas.
