The purpose of this research is to design an identity detection device for automobile theft prevention by integrating fingerprint and voice biometrics. The device functions sequentially as it requires both the owner’s fingerprint to start the vehicle’s engine and the owner’s voice for identity re-confirmation after 20 seconds to keep the vehicle moving. The voice biometrics serves as an added security system and is activated thru Android Application. Identity re-confirmation makes the design unique compared with other anti-theft systems. This is because the voice biometrics is designed for cases when the thief forcibly asks the owner for his fingerprint, takes over the vehicle, and leaves the owner behind. This feature allows for the owner’s safety against the thief. Based on actual testing, the accuracy and functionality of the device are met.
