Turning smartphones into convenient and flexible car keys
Thanks to advances in technology, car access solutions have become more convenient and secure over the years. Automotive industry players are progressively replacing traditional key fobs with more convenient, flexible, and cost-effective car access and engine start solutions.
IDEMIA provides carmakers with two innovative smart car access solutions that perfectly complement one another for an enhanced user experience:
IDEMIA’s digital car keys are compatible with NFC, Bluetooth (BLE) and UWB technologies. Digital car key solutions unlock new uses such as remotely sharing a key with others and allowing multiple user profiles for a shared vehicle. This smart car access solution supports both privately owned vehicle use cases and the growing Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) market. Digital keys cannot be duplicated and are unique —making them highly secure.
Smartphones can run out of battery, be lost, or get stolen. With an NFC card, drivers still have a way to access and start their car in these cases. IDEMIA NFC Key Cards are the same size as a credit card and are a great branding item for carmakers and drivers with endless design possibilities.
These smart car access solutions can be associated with specific user profiles to provide a more personalized service to drivers.
