Ericsson Digital Key unlocks possibilities for LYNK & CO

LYNK & CO has partnered with Ericsson and demonstrated the world’s first built-in share function. Ericsson’s digital key and LYNK & CO’s car sharing platform provides access to a LYNK & CO car through a smartphone enabling a car’s owner to remotely grant access to their car.

LYNK & CO, a new global car brand from Geely Auto Group, has partnered with Ericsson to help shape the future of car connectivity. Thanks to Ericsson’s Connected Vehicle Cloud service and its leadership in Cloud and Internet of Things, LYNK & CO have demonstrated the world’s first built-in share function.

Research suggests that most cars sit unused more than 90 percent of the time. Ericsson’s digital key and LYNK & CO’s car sharing platform provides access to a LYNK & CO car through a smartphone enabling a car’s owner to remotely grant access to their car. Via the LYNK & CO app, car owners can control, monitor and share their vehicle from their smartphone – or directly from the car.

The LYNK & CO brand was launched in October 2016 by Chinese car manufacturer Geely, which also owns the Volvo brand. The LYNK & CO 01 is the first car born completely in the digital age.

Connectivity is at the heart of the LYNK & CO brand whose cars offer a broad range of connected technologies aimed at making life easier. Applications displayed on a large central screen are permanently connected via on-board telematics to the LYNK & CO cloud which is powered by Ericsson. This opens up an ecosystem with almost limitless opportunities for the creation of features and services.
