Hyundai is thinking on to integrate mobile phone and the cars, allowing the users to lock and unlock the cars by tapping the door with the phone. Not only will this but the car also call up for the individual driver’s preferred radio stations and other settings, when the phone will be placed on the central console in the car.
The technology will allow the users to “wirelessly access and control personal content through the (7-inch) touchscreen including navigation, internet-based applications and multimedia.”
Hyundai is thinking on to use a good range of technologies including near-field communication (NFC) for the development of the cars. NFC has been used in many of the phones and helps the phone to communicate with each other and other devices when they are placed together.
“Hyundai’s Connectivity Concept showcases the brand’s philosophy of making tomorrow’s technology accessible to a wide range of customers. 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.” Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Hyundai Motor Europe, said in a statement.
The company is working in partnership with Broadcom Corporation. According to the company, the production of this technology will start as soon as 2015.
