On-demand Webinar: Solving the "Key Problem" in Vehicle Access using Automotive-grade NFC

Learn how automotive NFC technology enables the use of smartphones, smart cards, and key fobs for vehicle access, engine immobilizer, and easy wireless pairing with vehicle infotainment

► Recorded in February 2021

Watch this 1-hour on-demand webinar to get the latest on automotive-grade Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and how it can be used to control vehicle functions ranging from digital access to Qi chargers and center console applications.

The session will begin with an overview of the Car Connectivity Consortium® (CCC), the international body made up of vehicle original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs), electronics suppliers and handset manufacturers, charged with defining a common standard for NFC-based vehicle access and engine immobilization called "Digital Key".

By the end of this webinar, you will have a clear picture of the various NFC applications we can expect to see in the vehicles of tomorrow, along with the technology that is making these innovations possible. You will also be introduced to ST's family of high-performance automotive NFC Readers and associated design resources to help you get started on your automotive NFC project quickly and easily.

You will learn:

  • About the latest trends in the use of NFC technology for automotive applications
  • The relevant standards defined by the Car Connectivity Consortium® (CCC) to ensure uniformity in smartphone-to-car connectivity solutions
  • What you need to get started designing innovative automotive NFC applications
