Fingerprint Cards AB has collaborated with Lapa Electric to help create India’s first biometric-enabled electric scooter.

The premium electric mobility startup was looking for a way to utilise the smallest sensors possible that were capable of being integrated into its patented console and throttle system.

According to Fingerprints, Lapa Electric’s e-scooter will integrate its biometric sensor and algorithm.

The biometric-enabled e-scooters are said to be undergoing vehicle road testing before being launched in limited numbers in early 2025.

Adam Philpott, CEO, Fingerprints commented: “Over the last ten years, biometrics has become the preferred authentication method for consumers and businesses alike.

“From our phones, laptops, and payment cards to our homes and workplaces, biometrics is adding security while removing friction.

“As our lives, and our vehicles, become increasingly connected, we must enhance security processes and biometrics is a natural progression to underpin the future of mobility.”

“A totally new engineering approach”

Pavan Kumar at Lapa Electric added: “At Lapa Electric we are on the verge of bringing in a totally new engineering approach to e-two-wheelers like for example replacing heavy steel chassis with weddings and bolts and nuts with light and robust seamless monocoque carbon fiber chassis.

“Now we’re replacing physical keys with biometric smartness.

“The resulting scooter embodies premium and performance,” Kumar added.
