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.
