How the Face Connect innovation works

We believe you can use Face Connect to enrich your average driving adventure. When detecting your face via facial recognition, it matches it to your saved profile. You can register up to two faces. After confirming your identity, it checks your saved preferences for seat and steering position and adjusts them to your liking. This saves you from having to do it yourself.

Additionally, it adjusts the Heads-Up Display (HUD), side mirrors, and infotainment settings based on your pre-recorded settings. The system offers a near infrared (NIR) camera that maintains peak performance regardless of weather conditions. So you don’t have to worry when it is dark or foggy, as the system is prepared for easy entry and exit of the vehicle.

Although Face Connect accepts up to two faces for a vehicle, Genesis shows its innovative competence with a feature that allows you to record new profiles effortlessly via a voice assistant. Worried about safety? The system encrypts registered faces, so it’s safe. In addition, you can delete your profile at any time.
