Adoption of smart technology for vehicle safety and improved convenience

The adoption of smart technology, including smart key cards and phone-as-a-key functionality, is a significant advancement in the automotive industry that offers both, enhanced safety and convenience for vehicle owners. Smart key cards and phone-based access systems have revolutionized the traditional concept of car keys, providing drivers with a seamless and futuristic way to interact with their vehicles. For instance, in May 2021, Google worked with BMW and other automakers to develop a digital key that will let car owners lock, unlock, and start a vehicle from their Android smartphone The digital key is one of many new features coming to Android 12, which is the latest version of the company’s mobile operating system.

Moreover, the automotive keyless entry system is the next-gen automotive locking solution that provides an anti-theft solution for which key players are in partnerships and contracts with companies operating in security systems. For instance, in May 2022, Alps Alpine Co., Ltd. announced the joint development of a wireless digital key system with Giesecke+Devrient GmbH, a German company that develops security solutions. This co-developed system complies with the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) global standard. Both companies plan to expand sales of the system with the aim of adopting it for vehicles to be launched in the market in 2025.

Rise in number of vehicle thefts and vandalism incidents

Rise in vehicle theft and vandalism incidents has raised concerns over the security of automotive keyless entry systems. For instance, in 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation,  more than 1 million vehicles were stolen in the U.S. While these systems offer convenience, they have become susceptible to advanced hacking techniques like relay attacks. To counter these threats, manufacturers are implementing technological solutions. Advanced encryption algorithms and secure key exchange protocols are being integrated into keyless entry systems to protect against unauthorized access. Biometric authentication, using fingerprint or facial recognition, adds an extra layer of security by ensuring that only authorized users can access the vehicle.

Moreover, multi-factor authentication, combining different credentials for access, strengthens the system's security further. To combat vandalism and theft, some keyless entry systems are equipped with GPS tracking and remote immobilization features, enabling prompt vehicle recovery and prevention of unauthorized use. With ongoing technological advancements, keyless entry systems aim to offer enhanced security and peace of mind for vehicle owners.
