Drivers in China will now have more secure control over their vehicles thanks to Irdeto’s latest platform.
The Kanata North software firm’s digital key technology, Keystone, will be the latest addition to all new Hyundai vehicles in China, a partnership fueled by the growing demand for connected vehicles.
The Keystone app uses Bluetooth technology to allow owners to connect their car to their smartphone, eliminating the need for physical keys. It also offers the ability to register multiple users to track access and usage at the click of a button.
The platform is designed with security in mind, ensuring the safety of the driver and full protection against potential hacks or bugs.
This is the first time Hyundai has experimented with this type of technology, and while the auto maker is starting the transition with its ix25s and Sonata 10 models, Irdeto’s technology will be installed in all new vehicles in the near future.
