    Sumas NEXUS Lane to Accept RFID Documents during Peak Periods 

    Sumas-NEXUS-lane-RFID-blogThe NEXUS lane at the Sumas border crossing is now accepting those with radio frequency identification documents, known as RFID, during certain hours.

    The lane will be only for NEXUS pass holders from 8 to 11 a.m. weekdays. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, it will operate as a “Ready Lane,” according to Customs and Border Protection.

    The Ready Lane will accept NEXUS and RFID documents such as a U.S. passport, Global Entry card or Enhanced Driver’s License. In order to use the lane, your document must have RFID.

    The changes are being made to better accommodate commuter traffic, especially during peak periods, according to CBP.

    Hyundai Demonstrates Locking and Unlocking Vehicle via NFC 


    This week Hyundai have previewed a concept vehicle system which enables you to use your smartphone to unlock your vehicle with a tap. The system deploys NFC tags to build the connection between your smartphone and your vehicle, saving you from taking a bunch of keys.

    The system, which is called “Connectivity Concept”, uses NFC technology to make the connection. Your smartphone makes the vehicle unlock its doors. Then you can place the phone in a center console in the vehicle for further use. Once you’re connected within, you’ve got a 7-inch touchscreen to work with up front on the dash where you’re able to access music, phone contacts, radio, and phone settings.


    This system also works with wireless charging, this we must assume being compatible with all of the new devices that are working with said technology including the Nokia Lumia 920, the HTC DROID DNA (and Butterfly), and the LG Nexus 4. Of course it’s no guarantee, and the device they’re using in the demonstration thus far is none of these, but we can dream.

    “Hyundai’s Connectivity Concept showcases the brand’s philosophy of making tomorrow’s technology accessible to a wide range of customers. With this technology, Hyundai is able to harness the all-in-one functionality of existing smartphone technology and integrating it into everyday driving in a seamless fashion. As the technology continually develops, there will be capabilities to store driver’s seating positions and exterior mirror settings, providing customers with a comfortable and individual driving environment.” noted Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO Hyundai Motor Europe.
