The world is changing, futuristic technology is becoming more present every day. Mercedes-Benz recently previewed impressive new features: Keyless entry and starting of your car as well as parking your car using a mobile app.

With the new Mercedez-Benz E-Class, your smartphone becomes the key to enter and start the car. The only thing you need to do is tap your phone on your door handle and the car will open up. Once inside you can place your phone on a wireless charging plate to enable the ignition

As if this isn't sci-fi enough they also thought about a way to safely park your car using your smartphone. They call it the Remote Parking Pilot function, capable of parallel and perpendicular parking. All the driver has to do is get out of the car, open the app and touch the screen. 

Instead of explaining what this would look like, Mercedes-Benz uploaded a video to youtube, see for yourself:

These secure NFC solutions are based on Gemalto's Trusted Service Hub, which connects mobile network operators, handset makers and other secure element issuers to a central hub for software distribution and user-credential management.
