Valeo to unveil new smart key


Valeo will take the opportunity to roll out its new smart key at the Paris Motor Show.

The smart key provides a genuine interface between driver and car, allowing people to send information to their vehicle over a considerable distance (several hundred meters). The key’s mini screen displays information such as whether the doors are locked and the alarm is activated, tire pressure and fuel tank level. The key can be used to preprogram the seat position or radio station, to pre-ventilate the cabin, and to exchange navigation destinations downloaded from a computer. Information can also be exchanged between keys.

Sounds pretty interesting, and no longer will you have to walk away from your car only to think to yourself, “Have I locked my car?”
