Stollmann – specialist in software stacks for NFC, Bluetooth and ISDN –Philips & Lite-On Digital Solutions (PLDS) – globally well-known in the automotive infotainment industry – and Funkwerk Dabendorf – renowned producer of mobile communication solutions in the automotive industry – agree upon cooperation for the smartphone integration in the car via NFC.

Today, we can see a steady and substantial rise in the integration of the smartphone into the vehicle. Jointly, the companies work on an innovative concept for the automotive industry. This „all-round carefree package“ includes the optimal combination of NFC, Wireless Charging, a universal antenna coupling and the customized display of the smartphone surface in the vehicle’s head unit display. Using standard interfaces such as NFC and Qi (the wireless charging standard of the Wireless Power Consortium) ensures 100 per cent compatibility and versatile use.

„It will be one of the biggest challenges for the future to enable people to easily handle the growing amount of functionalities of the smartphone in the car without intensive study of the manuals. Therefore, Near Field Communication (NFC) is crucial for the advancement of a system that covers the complete and future-proof integration of mobile phones in the vehicle.” says Nico Borm, VP Sales & Marketing at Funkwerk Dabendorf GmbH.

An often cited example is Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing, at which an NFC-enabled mobile phone gets connected to the car radio via Bluetooth without entering a PIN, just by placing it at a built-in “NFC hotspot” in the car. In the future, along with well-established mobile phone functions such as telephone book or text messages it will be possible to transmit personalized information about the driver such as radio station, seat and mirror pre-settings. In times of increasing use of car sharing these solutions attract more and more interest.

“NFC is an essential transmission technology that is used in different industries and areas. The automotive industry uses NFC technology to open up towards other ecosystems. Nowadays, the user expects to use the smartphone with all its functionalities in the car as well – without complex integration processes” says Wenka Voss, International Marketing and Business Development Automotive at Stollmann.

The seamless integration of the mobile phone into the vehicle is also key to PLDS’s business developments. „We will ensure complete compatibility with all recent and future smartphones and optimal adaption of the integrated functionalities towards the specific needs of the driver.” says Stefan Graf, Director Marketing & New Technologies at PLDS.
