Modern vehicles use a variety of key-based access control methods to restrict use of the vehicle to authorized persons only. These keys are normally either a physical object, or a static piece of secret knowledge such as a PIN code, or newer server-based key sharing via a smartphone. Each of these methods have several disadvantages including significant security issues.
CycurACCESS is a smartphone based digital key sharing solution for vehicle access with the ability to share access by way of permissions. It removes the need for physical keys and key fobs and does not require network connectivity for the smartphone or the vehicle in order to access, thus eliminating the potential for being stranded in remote locations or in areas with no cellular or data network coverage.
