On Friday evening, the child returned home with his father and he thought his son had already gotten off the car and locked it. The car was parked in front of their house located in Al Ramsa area in Sharjah.

The police later claimed they found the boy in car, motionless. He was taken to Al Qasimi Hospital in Al Khezami where he was pronounced dead, Khaleej Times reported.

The Sharjah Police recently warned parents against leaving children locked in cars with the engines running. A top official said leaving children locked in cars even for five minutes in the sweltering heat can lead to suffocation, and could prove fatal.

Last year, more than five such cases were reported in Sharjah alone. (IANS)

NXP Semiconductors on Tuesday announced an addition to its ultra-wideband (UWB) chip with a new automotive integrated circuit (UWB IC) which is capable of turning smartphones into car keys.

The technology is designed to give spatial awareness to UWB-equipped cars, mobiles, and other smart devices, to enable cars to know exactly where the users are.

With this, users can open and start cars, while leaving their phones in their pockets or bags, and enjoy secure remote parking via smartphone. Furthermore, the new UWB IC brings maximum level of protection against car theft through relay attacks.
