Start your car with NFC in your phone? Not until 2015

0. phoneArena 27 Dec 2012, 18:56 posted on

There are a ton of uses for NFC that we haven't seen yet, because the industry is so laser focused on getting mobile payments off the ground, but if you've ever dreamed of being able to use your smartphone to unlock or start your car with just a tap, that is coming. But, not until around 2015...

This is actually an idea floated around back with WiFi then Bluetooth...

I would like to see this, wireless charging, plus NFC vehicle access, AND go the extra step in those states/country's where they dont allow txt/handset calls while driving and add an emergency tone to blair through the speakers when the phone is removed from the docking area... I might add disable the vehicle after a set amount of time if its removed, but that could lead to more harm then good these days (I have passed my phone to others when their own was dead or they didnt have one)... Bluetooth would be better for care disabling since its range is enough to be within the entierty of the vehicle...

Driver may have more than one phone or driver may use passenger's phone so there is no way how to control that.

Each device has its own address so no conflict there.

This is true yes, but when it comes to those situations, they are the "minority"...

A feature like this would catch the majority of people, if you havent been alive long enough, they dont care about the special cases, heck, almost no-one cares about special cases (except apple, they want you in jail for jailbreaking)!

Well Apple would want every car controlled from Copper-Tin-O control center.

What about wireless charge once my phone is detected in the car?
