Key fobs enabled with UWB get “Access Denied” and “Access Granted” right every time. Volkswagen and NXP preview a concept car that shows how UWB technology can protect against car theft via relay attacks – and boost convenience and safety in the car. With UWB, the system precisely measures the travel time of the signal between the key and car for unprecedented localization accuracy – a few centimeters in real-time. This accuracy, combined with low power consumption, enables a great number of use cases for future cars: preventing theft, recognizing users by their gestures, verifying the child seat positioning and even automating the trailer hitch.
