Availability of systems has doubled on new passenger cars since 2010…

As smart key systems reach a critical time in their development, SBD draws together its knowledge and research to define the future for smart key technology in this new report.

Availability of smart key systems has doubled in Europe since 2010 and the rise in split smart start and smart entry systems has helped increase fitment rates to over 15% on all new passenger cars. But does this mean that a future strategy of standard smart start systems with smart entry as optional is a viable long-term solution for OEMs and customers? Also, what impact will smartphones and in-vehicle telematics services have on the role of smart key systems in the car?

Designed as part of the SBD Secure Car research package into the next generation of smart key systems, this report analyses the latest in OEM, supplier and customer trends, setting out the development direction for the next five years of smart keys.

Fitment of smart key systems in Europe has been increasing steadily since the introduction of Keyless Go on the 1999 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and there are now several manufacturers who offer smart key on model ranges in the European market.
