Delphi’s key fob technology is providing low-cost smart phone connectivity using both Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC) platforms.
The company’s key fob designs and custom apps enable information exchange between drivers and their vehicles that is continual, reliable and convenient while giving vehicle manufacturers the ability to meet the specific information needs of different global markets.
Delphi’s Bluetooth Gateway Key Fob allows users to view important vehicle information and complete often-performed tasks remotely on their smart phone or similar device.
“From receiving security and diagnostic alerts to checking a vehicle’s eco-score, our technology allows drivers to monitor vehicle statistics from their smart phone via Delphi’s key fob,” said Beth Schwarting, general director, Electronic Controls, Delphi Electronics & Safety. “Drivers no longer need to be inside their vehicles or have an internet connection to get updates on vehicle status.”
Delphi’s also offers a Smart Key Fob that uses NFC to provide drivers direct accessibility to vehicle information while helping to ensure the security of data exchange.
The NFC wireless standard, a read/write technology, offers both secure information transfer and a low power consumption mode. Its low-range communication profile —only 2 inches (5 cm) —helps prevent hacking while its low consumption mode helps ensure durability and reliability.
