Suppliers Team Up On NFC For Cars
In the future, you will be able to access all your smartphone’s features simply by dropping your phone into a carved-out spot near the dashboard. The phone will connect and sync data using NFC (near field communication) technology.
NFC software provider Stollman, in-car infotainment system expert Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions, and automotive communications specialist Funkwerk Dabendorf are working on a solution that will offer an “NFC hotspot” in future vehicles.
The phone will transfer apps, text messages, contact information, and other contents to an in-vehicle display. It will also open new ways for developers to create apps that interact with the car.
