Link Motion, one of the leading players in the field of smart cars has signed a deal with Irdeto, the top company in digital platform security for the development of a viable security platform for future cars. The two companies will collaborate on integrating Irdeto’s new smartphone-based secure vehicle access and safety solution, Keystone, into the Link Motion CarBrain platform.
The automotive manufacturers who use Link Motion’s CarBrain can now provide their customers with a safe and simple solution when it comes to operating the connected cars and autonomous vehicles that will become more prevalent in the future, especially for ride-sharing business models.
Pasi Nieminen, vice-president of Link Motion, said, “Most OEMs don’t want to source their technology offerings with multiple vendors, but rather integrate one technology platform that can deploy all offerings. We also look forward to including these features in our own smart ride business as well.”
Keystone is a mobile phone enabled, fully secure, policy-based vehicle access, sharing and safety solution.
Announced in collaboration with Conjure (a digital experience company that develops multiple programs for the automotive and motorcycle industry) at CES 2018, Keystone is a mobile phone enabled, fully secure, policy-based vehicle access, sharing and safety solution.
By integrating the solution into the Link Motion CarBrain platform, OEMs are able to provide consumers with the ability to customise their driving experience by sharing keys with authenticated drivers, including family, friends, valets, parcel delivery people and many others while setting rules around the usage of the vehicle.
From controlling the speed limit of the car, time of use, geolocation, trunk or glove box access, numbers of passengers in the vehicle and much more, car owners have the flexibility and freedom to customize their driving experience by enforcing vehicle usage policies.
