My gadget of the week is a smart fob that transfers data onto your iPhone. It collects data from the car every time the driver switches off the engine, recording things like trip information, mpg, fuel level and tyre pressures. It also includes maintenance alerts and can even warn you if you leave a window open. If the driver then holds the fob next to the phone whilst running the app the information is transferred wirelessly using Near Field Communication (NFC) which will be standard in some mobiles in a couple of years. The makers claim that it is very secure as the phone and the fob have to be 5cm or less apart (Hmmm!). They are expecting to make it possible to use the phone to pay road tolls and parking in the not too distant future. What do you think? Some manufacturers already store data in the key for the service engineer – good idea? By Graham Hill
