CarPlay is one of those deployments that keep giving much of that talk, but it is still far from an option to a large base of users, the beauty of this is that Apple is betting on it with new patents that you point to new and interesting functions.
And now thanks to Appleinsider learned that Apple received a patent pending this week in 2012 which seeks that the iPhone is an important piece between the car and the power user Open, start, and activate other functions of our vehicle equipped with CarPlay.
The patent search that the car and the iPhone are recognized based on location, so make use of the iPhone as a remote control for opening and closing doors or glass, as well as to activate the heating or air conditioning and even start the vehicle engine, where the latter does not sound very safe, but patent mentions that the ignition of the engine has a restriction, and that it will not turn on until the driver seated with the seat belt and all the doors closed.
This patent is complemented by another that was granted to them a few months ago, talked about that I could locate the car by GPS in case of theft or Bluetooth LE to know where we had parked, and is that with this new patent the car you know where we are approaching with a field of action or “geofence” which is generated on the perimeter of the car, so open the door that corresponds to our location or the boot if it is that we came from behind, in the same way if we move away this active alarms.
Of course this would work only with the iPhone previously bound CarPlay and not allowed to connect to another until the first link has been deactivated. But remember that We are talking about just a patent, What does not guarantee that in the short term this technology is implemented, so we are only left by the time the concept waiting for you in the future becomes a reality.
