The smartphone is looking to be part of your everyday by 2015, this according to Hyundai. By 2015 HYundai wants your smartphone to be the center piece of the car, and have your smartphone replace your car keys. Chevy already has an app that starts your car from anywhere, Hyundai is looking to incorporate NFC technology which would allow the driver lock and unlock cars. The driver would swipe their phone by the car to open the doors, save seat settings and customize the overall in-car experience.
“Hyundai’s Connectivity Concept showcases the brand’s philosophy of making tomorrow’s technology accessible to a wide range of customers,” Allan Rushforth, SVP and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, said. “With this technology, Hyundai is able to harness the all-in-one functionality of existing smartphone technology and integrating it into everyday driving in a seamless fashion. As the technology continually develops there will be capabilities to store driver’s seating positions and exterior mirror settings, providing customers with a comfortable and individual driving environment.”
