Passive Keyless Entry Possible With BLE

Imec demonstrates what it calls the first solution for secure and very accurate passive keyless entry on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This technology enables a seamless car access experience where a BLE device, such as a mobile phone, acts as a digital car key.

 

Imec’s HADM on BLE achieves an accuracy of 30 centimeters, said to be over 10 times better than current approaches, even those already using phase-based ranging techniques. Additionally, it adds a physical layer of security features that create a secure distance measurement between two Bluetooth-enabled communication devices.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

With this offering, imec shows that BLE is ready to support a wide new range of disruptive services for proximity applications in a secure and cost-effective way. These range from passive keyless access to cars and smart door-locks to accurate indoor navigation and tire pressure measurement applications. A growing number of cars offer passive keyless entry solutions that automatically unlock a car’s doors as its owner approaches. Yet, ways of electronically stealing a car have become increasingly sophisticated as well – with relay attacking being a well-known risk. For more details, visit imec.
