Drive Wire: Volvo Is Testing Digital Key Technology

Volvo is testing new technology that will replace your car keys with your smartphone, giving you both a convenient new path to vehicle entry and one less thing to remember when running out the door. Drivers with the app will be able to do everything they could with a fob, but they'll now be able to send digital copies of their keys to trustworthy friends and family. Volvo says they'll start offering digital keys in 2017.
