Control Your Car From Afar
Audi and LG: The luxury car manufacturer unveiled a tap-to-unlock webOS-based technology for the Audi S7 at CES earlier this year. It’s designed to let drivers unlock the car, and eventually, start and stop the engine, using an LG smartwatch. Connected directly to Audi’s piloted driving Q7 prototype, the wearable device is designed with NFC (near field communication) so that even when the battery is drained, you can talk to the car and open the door. Other functions, such as starting and controlling the engine, the windows, and temperature, were not confirmed but in the works.
