Classic car keys, which are used to unlock the door and turn the ignition switch, may soon become a relic. Now car manufacturers are introducing electronic keys. These are chips housed in small units. They provide more convenience when interacting with the car. And most functions can be performed using a smartphone.

For this purpose, two technologies UWB and NFC were involved. LG’s own technology is responsible for security against hacking attempts. As the electronic key LG Innotek provides precise identification of people in the car of passengers and the driver even in the presence of each of them the key of the car.
