Automakers Are Working Together To Get Rid Of Car Keys

Car keys have evolved a lot since the introduction of the automobile. Keys started off as metal sticks that you’d turn in an ignition, but have evolved into proximity key fobs that you carry around to trigger a start button. Proximity keys are great because they allow drivers to get in their cars without having to reach into their pocket.

 

 

The next generation of car keys is in development right now as automakers begin to replace expensive key fobs with something we already carry around in our pockets: a smartphone. Tesla has already introduced the idea of using a smartphone as a key with the new Model 3, which only has a backup card key if the smartphone dies. A group called the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) – including Volkswagen, BMW, Hyundai, Apple, LG, Samsung, and others – just announced the publication of the Digital Key Release 1.0 specification.

 

 

The specification is available for all CCC members and offers a standardized solution to use smartphones for locking and unlocking vehicles. The CCC says the standard will make use of NFC technology and the system will have the highest state-of-the-art security level for vehicle access.

    With winter on its way, the roads can be dangerous because it dries slower and road visibility as well as battery failure can also be hazardous.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
