Biometric identification, smart windows and cloud-based data storage are just of the three innovations unveiled at this year's CES technology forum in Las Vegas that are set to revolutionise the vehicles of tomorrow.
While your fingerprint has long been able to unlock your mobile phone or tablet, it may soon be able to unlock your car.
Biometric identification for car keys is just one of a host of fresh ideas to emerge at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, alongside in-car facial recognition technology and smart windows.
Automotive supplier Continental unveiled the new tech systems, which would allow the storage and loading of personalised driver settings, such as seat and mirror positioning and favourite destinations for GPS mapping software.
Smart windows would also allow for the shading of windows according to the driver's preference.
