The car key of the future is an app – that much is clear to the automotive supplier Huf. The solutions offered by the subsidiary company Huf Secure Mobile GmbH go one step further: it is not just access to the vehicle that is a focal point of the company's latest developments, but the granting of individual rights also enables them to be used efficiently in fleet management for car fleets, car rental companies and car sharing providers. Access solutions are offered under the brand name SixSense and can be retrofitted to existing vehicles as well as supplied for the new cars produced by car manufacturers.
This unique approach to security clearly differentiates the product from any existing ones: 'It's not just about e.g. enabling easy access to vehicles for users of rental cars, but also enabling individual and secure data exchange between the driver and vehicle owner', says Ulrich Hülsbeck (Managing Director Huf Group). The product by Huf Secure Mobile GmbH thus offers a highly complex infrastructure that provides security and therefore protection against hacking and data theft at every level in addition to pure functionality.
Huf will present the mobility solution at Automechanika: hall 2.0, stand 87
