Dual entity controlled multi-mode access system

Disclosed is a system and method for dual entity controlled mode access. Vehicle

authentication system have evolved since the time when a key was used to gain entry into a vehicle and the same key was used to start the engine. Over the years, this authentication system has evolved to a point wherein one integrated circuit (IC) chip or a radio frequency (RF) vehicle tag has the driver's license information with all points accumulated on it. This has helped to make the overall system more dynamic and secure.

However, with dynamically changing world and an increase in number of vehicle access

related crimes, there is a need to further evolve the complete solution of vehicle authentication. Many different scenarios need to be covered by the authentication system from technology perspective and by the law enforcement agency/private agencies from implementation perspective. The disclosed method takes this technology further and addresses the following limitations of existing vehicle authentication systems:

The inability to integrate control by multiple agencies in a single authentication

       1.
system: Since driving a vehicle involves both - the vehicle owner's preferences and any law enforcement agency's preferences.

Many different scenarios are not covered:


2.

Not allowing under age kids access to front doors.


i.

Allowing a valid drivers license holder access to vehicle but not to engine (even

ii.

when the person in question is allowed to drive) based on vehicle owner's preferences.

Instantly removing access to vehicle when a person's state ID is under question

iii. for serious issues.

A multi-level authentication for individuals irrespective of origin and destination of a travel plan is used. Figure 1 identifies components in an example embodiment. Figure 2 depicts an example authentication system for storing and retrieving information over a network uses two databases with a license card only providing the license number. The two authentication systems are separate with a vehicle access and separate valid drivers license check in terms of implementation and administration. Secondly, the license card information is sent to law enforcement agency database every time the engine is started - thus validating the data with updated information every time and also providing law enforcement agency with the useful information about the driver of the vehicle at a particular point of time. The input from the current driving records from the state and the information stored in a local database are used to authorize a user...
