Vocational College students invent motorbike anti-theft device

Last Update: 19/09/2019

BACHOK, Sept 19 -- Motorbike theft is a common problem so 19-year-olds Wan Amiruddin Wan Amran and Adeeb Aideen Mat Yusof from Kolej Vokasional (KV) Bachok decided to invent the Fingerprint Bike Starter, a biometric authentication device.

A final year project for the Diploma in Electronic Technology, the pair said they spent around RM500 and took six months to develop a system and prototype which also had to be tested for effectiveness on actual motorbikes.

“The Fingerprint Bike Starter system is difficult to breach and therefore prevents theft.

“A motorbike can only be started after the owner’s or anybody else’s fingerprint stored in the system has been authenticated. It can store 127 fingerprints,” said Wan Amiruddin when met at the ‘Inreach Fair and KV Skills Competition 2019’ at KV Bachok yesterday.

He said the main challenge was programming the device and system to start a motorcycle or car with an ignition button, using fingerprint identification.

Adeeb Aideen said their creation uses Arduino software, has a voice-recording system, liquid crystal display (LCD) and fingerprint scanner brought in from overseas.

He said they’ve already received orders for the device from lecturers and fellow students, with installation taking 12 days.

With the boys believing their creation can be marketed, KV Bachok director, Rusli Idris, said a patent will be sought.
