The technological news and the biometric company ‘Unioncommunity’ has decided to integrate a biometric identification process in motorcycle parking lots, for the moment called Ubio-X MPass.
Biometrics, if you’re not sure, is the use of biological data to authenticate identity, much like using your fingerprint or face to unlock your phone.
Intended primarily for the South Asian market (for now), this “parking solution” scans your license plate and face, before opening the gate and letting you in. It is recognized as a means of preventing motorcycle theft by associating the vehicle with its driver.

It boasts of having super-fast ID times and capable of processing up to 15 motorcycles or scooters per minute – pretty fast when you think about the time you can sometimes spend staring gasless at a machine while it is running. produces a ticket. This is if you even need a ticket on your motorcycle.
Now, if you feel a little skepticism here, you are right. * puts on an aluminum hat * In the age of data culture and facial recognition, I can’t help but wonder why there is a sudden rush for external surveillance systems to be put in place everywhere to see what we’re all doing. at any time. It just doesn’t suit me.
Is it really a motorcycle parking solution?
I also have a few questions about adding this biometric system to a parking machine, and the answers provided by this machine are the ones I’m not sure anyone is asking.
Why does a parking machine need to know what i look like? What is scanning if I’m wearing a full face helmet, and how can it identify anything if you can really only see my eyes? Do I have to take off my helmet to pass the barrier? How does all of this prevent theft in one way or another?
I understand it could just forgo the need for parking tickets, store your face on a system that recognizes you have a valid reason for being there, you’ve paid for your parking tickets, and you don’t have a warrant of arrest pending. But stay.
Apparently, the system is initially developed for Vietnam, where motorcycles are by far the most popular mode of transportation, and will be installed at a âtrunk makerâ in early March. This may be a form of employee identification to check in for work on time – but the open questions remain, and I highly doubt that all of this effort is being made to point employees to the boarding gate for work.
Unioncommunity biometric parking – it sounds a bit bossy
CEO of Unioncommunity Shin Yosik said
âWe will extend the parking management system by combining new types of technologies that have not been seen in the biometrics-based access control market, and provide all parking related solutions in an integrated manner.â
It should be noted that Unioncommunity also has a âUBio Alpeta integrated security solutionâ to also manage time and attendance records.
I don’t know about you, but the parking is pretty straightforward as it is, and it doesn’t create any solution – it creates more problems! I prefer to have a ticket at the moment.
