Auto supplier Continental Corp. is displaying a concept car at the 2011 Mobile World Congress that demonstrates how NXP's NFC technology can enable novel applications that merge the mobile experience with driving.

For example, using NFC a driver can open his car in the morning by presenting his NFC enabled phone to the door, triggering an authentication cycle between the phone's secure element and the car. The car will give the driver a personal welcome message, set their comfort preferences and then by simply placing the phone in a dock on the dashboard, it becomes part of the on-board entertainment and communication system, presenting a selection of personal music choices, facilitating audio streaming and setting up hands free calling.

The secure mobile device can also disarm the engine immobilizer and allow the engine to start. The NFC-enabled phone is also able to receive important diagnostic data such as fuel consumption, mileage and service data to be viewed away from the car at a later time.

Using GPS, the location coordinates of the car can also be sent to the phone via NFC, enabling consumers to easily locate their vehicles in a new city or large car park.
