The car-jacking, the Japanese sit on it!(tech)

Japanese researchers have developed a system that would secure the car so could not be more original: by identifying the driver through a scan of his buttocks.

They are engineers of the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology of Tokyo who worked on the development of this system. The project is to equip the driver’s seat of 360 individual sensors measuring the pressure at various parts of the rash. Each of these sensors calculates the pressure on 256 levels. A 3D mapping of the buttocks of the driver is then performed. If the three-dimensional mapping of the person sitting gluteal does not match the vehicle owner, you can not start the car. The problem is that the system may not be effective if a person makes or loses weight and if he/she has something in the back pocket.

Tested on six different people, the process would show an accuracy of 98%. Engineers think the system will be ready in three years at most.
