韩国现代汽车开始测试车载支付功能

据美国报道,韩国现代公司携手车辆用户体验开发商Xevo,在本周三的汽车技术大会上公布了车内支付的概念,即为现代汽车搭建一个数字钱包支付平台。随着新技术的研发,现代汽车的美国用户很快就能享受车内支付服务,坐在车中轻松支付油费、停车费等服务。

这一平台能够安全地存储用户使用车内支付服务时的消费信息。汽车用户可以通过该平台在雪佛龙和德士古的加油站支付油费、使用Applebee's To Go点餐和付款、在Parkwhiz上预订车位并且预付费用。

现代汽车的科技规划主管卡森?格罗夫(Cason Grover)表示,目前现代汽车还没有确定具体使用这一平台的时间,并仍在考虑使用这一平台的具体方式。这一平台可能会以车载支付app的方式出现,也可能会以支付软件的方式安装在之后的汽车信息娱乐系统上。为了做出最终决定,公司计划在汽车上进行具体试验。

Xevo也为现代汽车公司带来了3个合作伙伴——雪佛龙、Applebee's和ParkWhiz。基于现有的服务水平,这3个品牌能够和现代汽车达成良好合作,提供更好的用户体验。格罗夫提到,目前,现代汽车只能在美国使用Xevo提供的技术,技术的升级和维护方式仍需要不断地发展进步。

Mobile payments have come a long way, but recent tests from companies like Hyundai have advanced an even more novel notion. Now, mobile payments are sufficiently mobile that you can drive around in them, or at least, in the car that features them. Hyundai’s own testing on this front has gone quite well so far, reports note, as a partnership with Xevo is poised to expand and add new businesses—Applebee’s, Chevron, ParkWhiz, and Texaco—to the roster.

With these new businesses in place, Hyundai drivers will have even less reason to get out of the car. They’ll effectively be able to order and buy food for pickup, get gas on the ride home, and even pay for parking when they get there.

The tests route the payments interface through the Android Auto smartphone interface, presenting the necessary user responses through a smartphone. Future testing, meanwhile, is likely to more directly involve Hyundai’s own Blue Link infotainment system, providing users with a necessary interface through that. Hyundai is also actively working on a tool called “Hyundai Mobile Wallet”, which offers secure storage of payment credentials.

There’s no word as yet as to when the system goes completely in-car through Blue Link, let alone when it will actually be available for end users, as right now Hyundai’s calling the whole thing a “proof of concept” for the time being. It had better hurry, however, or it’s going to end up beaten to the market by a whole bunch of new options from Ford, Chevrolet, and even Jaguar, all of whom are developing at least some breed of in-car mobile payments technology.

Imagine your car automatically paying tolls, or picking up the tab for gas so all a driver need do is get out long enough to pump. For those who live in states with hot summers and / or cold winters, that could be the greatest news they’ll hear all day. Better yet, making mobile order-ahead as easy as a few touchscreen presses could put drive-thru windows on some of the most upscale restaurants as people pick up everything from burgers to porterhouse on the way home.

Such a system could revolutionize the way we live, and since it’s under development on several fronts at once, we’ll likely see how it all boils down sooner rather than later.
