The process of renting or sharing and then driving a vehicle can be expedited by enabling the customer to use their mobile device to initiate a rental application as part of an onboarding process. The KYC process can be made more secure by requiring the renter to authenticate their driver’s license on their mobile device prior to the rental. Knomi can be used to authenticate the driver’s license and also to biometric match a live facial image to that printed on the license to verify they are its owner. Their age can also be automatically validated.
Similarly, biometric onboarding can also be useful for fleet management, where it is employees that are sharing vehicles as opposed to customers. Here, biometrics can fulfill a similar KYE security requirement, where new drivers’ identities are verified using biometrics as part of the onboarding process. Biometrics can be used to verify that a driver’s license they are using is theirs. Document verification proves that the ID is authentic.
Convenience, security, and data attribution
Secure convenience features can also be provided to renters and professional drivers, such as remote entry and start and biometric authentication for vehicle operation. Data collected about vehicle operation can be confidently attributed to a particular driver.
