Continental has unveiled its Key as a Service portfolio, which features its cloud-based solutions Continental Smart Access (CoSmA) and Remote Cloud Key (RCK) to provide convenient and secure keyless vehicle access and start authorization.
Both solutions support on demand access to vehicles using a smart device, to lock, unlock and authorize the vehicle for start. In addition, CoSmA enables handsfree access system and is already embedded in the vehicle architecture, whereas RCK works as an aftermarket solution.
It is a perfect fit for the rapidly growing shared mobility services market, with faster response time than telematics based access solutions as well as offline availability for end users. Further, Continental has acquired full ownership of OTA keys, underlining its interest in developing “Key as a Service” as an important component of its mobility services portfolio.
