Hyundai will Introduce Digital Key to Unlock & Start Cars via Smartphone


Digital Key is the Replacement of Traditional Key System for Cars…!!!

It’s the era of technology and new technology replaces the previous one and decreases its value. Here is a big news for the car holders as most of us forget to keep the car keys at one place so to overcome this problem Hyundai would help us now with Digital Key. The company announced that it is developing a digital key that will allow the users to unlock and start their car via smartphone. The Digital Key can be downloaded through an app and up to four authorized users will be able to download the key. The users can also detect their car via digital key-enabled smartphone if it is close to the door. For better working of this Digital Key the Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication technologies would be used in it. The reason behind this innovative idea is to replace the Traditional Physical Key as the key may be lost or misplace from anyone. So this would be a good approach and an implementation of new technology in upcoming vehicles.
