Delphi demos Wireless Vehicle Access for the iPhone

Delphi is demoing its Wireless Vehicle Access software for the iPhone at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show. It’s only a concept at this year’s CES, but it shows what an iPhone, smartphone, or Blackberry might do for your car, reports PC Mag. Delphi has been working on smart key fobs, one using the same inking technology as on the Sony Reader, that presents an image on the fob showing if the car is locked or unlocked, or which door is ajar, before you press the button, the article adds. The Wireless Vehicle Access offers a Bluetooth link from the phone, to the key fob, to the car, with dozens of functions.The combination is powerful enough to locate you car and report its status a mile away in a parking garage, which really means, that no matter how deep you are inside your house, the remote will work, Delphi’s Craig Tieman told PC Mag. You can also turn on the engine, roll down the windows, monitor tire pressure and much more. (Photo courtesy of PC Mag)
