NFC software provider Stollmann has announced a partnership with Harman, a global audio and infotainment group, to deliver NFC capabilities to the auto industry.
According to Stollman, the partners will collaborate on a solution to connect the driver’s cell phone with in-vehicle components via Bluetooth and ‘NFC hotspots.’
For example, the technology would allow the driver to connect his or her phone to the car’s sound system in order to answer calls over the car’s speakers, or play music wirelessly from the same device.
All of these features would be accessible ‘in just a click’ from an infotainment interface provided by Harman, according to Stollmann.
“In the future, NFC will pave the way for innovative solutions in motor vehicles, ranging from simple diagnostic interfaces all the way to payment solutions,” the partners said in a release. “Harman is adding NFC to its future portfolio and is placing its trust in the quality of Stollmann.”
