“Virtual Key” is a smart lock system that replaces the car key with a smartphone, that is, “the smartphone becomes the car key”. It consists of an authentication server that uses Jigowatts’ authentication technology, a smartphone application, and a dedicated in-vehicle device. It is also possible to incorporate the virtual key function into the apps of car sharing service providers.
This early access program targets car sharing and rental car service providers and system providers. It is possible to easily develop a smart lock function from an existing vehicle rental management system, such as issuing keys with set users and expiration dates through API.
As a first step, Smart Value Co., Ltd., which advocates mobility IoT, has already announced its participation in the early access program with the aim of adopting it for the platform “Kuruma Base” to promote the car service. I have received it.
Jigowatts and Eid are conducting verification work and demonstrations so that many businesses can adopt it as a tool to realize unmanned and 24-hour mobility services (MaaS) such as car sharing and rental cars, which are rapidly increasing. We would like to cooperate with the experiment.
