Smartphone-based hands-free car access with Ultra-Wideband
Description Continental’s CoSmA system with Ultra-Wideband technology turns the smartphone into a digital key for hands-free access to the vehicle. The driver can access and start the car using their own smartphone without having to pick up the device. For the first time, a handsfree smartphone access system offers enhanced anti-theft protection combined with a high level of convenience. In one app, the car owner can generate and manage multiple digital keys at the same time and share them easily with family and friends. Package delivery services can even deliver online orders directly to the vehicle using one-time keys. Jury statement The smartphone as a digital car key is a solution in tune with the times, which simultaneously expands the opportunities for new concepts for using cars – from sharing to your personal deposit box for deliveries. The system not only automatically opens the door or starts the engine, but is also very secure.
