NFC card for automotive

Offering a new and convenient way for car access

NFC Card for Automotive IDEMIA

The automotive industry is undergoing a digital revolution that changes usage patterns and ownership models. This revolution requires more flexible ways to access vehicles; consequently what used to be a physical car key is being dematerialized into our smartphones.

Although digital car keys give way to unprecedented convenience, carmakers also provide end-users with NFC cards: a sidekick solution for car access with a visual reminder of their brand. This secure and convenient backup comes in handy when valeting the car, lending to a friend, or when one’s smartphone runs out of battery.

Thanks to decades of experience in payment cards and identity documents, IDEMIA has created a customizable portfolio of NFC Key Cards with endless visual effects. This portfolio is compliant with multiple car access technologies, including Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC). IDEMIA also provides carmakers with on-brand design creation, customized applications development, and secure personalization of sensitive credentials.
