The Standard for Connection
Sets New Standards in Safety

A mainstay in the automotive market, Bluetooth® technology has created connections between car and driver which have brought new levels of safety to our roads and more convenience to the in-car experience.

Bluetooth is behind in-car infotainment systems that enable hands-free calling and audio streaming. These systems help reduce distracted driving and provide a safer way to stay connected on the road.

Bluetooth comes standard in nearly every new vehicle, and is now enabling exciting, emerging use cases that increase fuel efficiency, protect drivers from the effects of fatigue, and better connect cars and drivers to the cities around them.

Key Use Cases


Drivers have always had a special bond with their vehicles. Bluetooth wireless technology now connects us to our cars like never before. Bluetooth in-car infotainment systems pair with driver smart phones to enable hands-free audio streaming, calling, and application control. Bluetooth does more than enhance the in-car experience. It allows drivers to keep their focus on what matters most, the road.


Smart phones are the new key fob. Thanks to Bluetooth, they enable a wider variety of convenience features, including proximity detection for automatic locking and unlocking, custom seat positioning, and the transfer of virtual keys to additional drivers.


Advancements in biometrics and Bluetooth are transforming the driver experience. Driver wearables monitor blood pressure, heart rate, and activity levels, and trigger driver alerts when detecting signs of sleep or fatigue. These devices create a safer travel experience during long-haul, commercial transports or extended road trips.


As standards for fuel efficiency increase, so too does the need to replace wired systems with wireless solutions, lowering manufacturing costs and reducing the weight of the vehicle to improve fuel economy. Bluetooth technology connects wireless sensor systems and transfers diagnostic information and alerts in real-time to simplify maintenance in both commercial fleets and consumer vehicles.
