Takata, a safety and technology company, and TruTouch have created a vehicle start button with an integrated infrared sensor that can measure your blood-alcohol content. If the reading exceeds legal limits, the system can disable the starter. As the technology advances, it could help eliminate drunken driving, according to TruTouch. The system could be a reality within a decade.One of the key tipping points for the whole biometrics field will be when insurance companies begin giving their customers discounts for adopting better ID management technology that reduces the risk of a claim.
