Light Touch Emblem
True fans eyes’ light up when they see their car. How great must the joy be when the car reflects this joy with dynamic lighting and decent vibration? These welcome effects are among the many highlights of the Huf Light Touch Emblem. What's more, operation at the touch of a finger is as smooth as on a smartphone and thus the entry into a modern vehicle experience.
The Light Touch Emblem also ensures reliable vehicle access when the car battery is discharged. The user can charge a small battery inside the car with an NFC-enabled smartphone (Near Field Communication) and then access the car. Learn more about Huf Smart Emergency Access here.

Light Touch Emblem
Small package, maximum benefits
The Huf Light Touch Emblem consists of very few components. Due to the elimination of mechanical levers, the system is robust and low-maintenance and functions reliably even under extreme temperatures and weather conditions. The highlight: the brand emblem of the respective car manufacturer conceals new functionalities such as individual light effects that orchestrate the user's approach to the vehicle and thus improve user guidance.
Intuitive to use, haptically pleasing
Intuitive use is one of the key benefits of the Light Touch Emblem. A decisive comfort extra for vehicle users is the large active actuation field that takes up almost the entire surface of the control unit. It only takes a gentle touch on the haptically responsive surface to unlock the door electronically. The module responds to the touch with a subtle vibration.
Extremely compact dimensions provide great design freedom
With its low construction height of around one centimeter, the Light Touch Emblem can be placed almost anywhere on the vehicle, thus creating great design flexibility. In addition, the shape and surface of the control element can be flexibly designed according to the demands of the car manufacturer. The visual highlight: light signatures, which can be customized for each vehicle to create a special welcome effect.

We have paved the way
As a specialist for secure car access and authorization, Huf has significantly influenced the development towards the digital key with numerous milestones. For example, Huf supplied the first door handle with integrated NFC technology and enables opening via smartphone.
Remote access starts with Huf
In 1989, Huf became the first automotive supplier worldwide to produce an infrared key. The Mercedes SL (R129) was the first car that drivers could open and close from a distance at the push of a button.
With door handles from Huf, drivers can enter the vehicle without actively using the key for the first time ever. Car manufacturers have sold this revolutionary technology with illustrious names such as Keyless-Go (Mercedes) or Comfort Access (BMW). Huf was the first automotive supplier to introduce NFC technology into the door handle.
As a specialist for car access and authorization, Huf recognized the trend towards digital keys early on. As early as 2014, Huf founded the subsidiary Huf Secure Mobile (today Liberkee) and now offers digital key management for car rental companies and car sharing providers.
Huf actively involved in development
Huf is a permanent member of the industry-wide working groups FiRa and Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC). Together with representatives of automotive manufacturers and suppliers as well as chip and smartphone manufacturers, Huf is working on worldwide digital key standards.
