We are now getting used to the fact that a cloud connected car has enabled consumers to use their smartphone to check the status or even unlock doors of a vehicle with an app. While this has enabled shared mobility services such as DriveNow, Car2Go and many others, it is not a convenient way of interacting with a vehicle on a daily basis. Perhaps, we can also rethink the key paradigm adding some coolness on the way?
