We've all done it – we've got to our car, patted down our pockets in panic and realized that we have no idea where our car keys are. However, LG Innotek could have the ultimate solution to this perennial problem. LG Innotek has developed a new smartphone module that can enable you to unlock and manage your car with your smartphone. This new module operates similarly to how some keyless cars operate, except with a greater number of features and applications. 

This smartphone module allows wireless data transfer between cars and smartphones. This data transfer can be used in various ways, including unlocking and operating the car.
