The Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) system offers greater ease of use for car drivers and passengers.

What is a Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) system for cars?

Passive Entry Passive Start (PEPS) is an automotive system that allows the user to access and start the vehicle without taking the key out of a bag or pocket. The driver can automatically lock and unlock the car doors when in proximity of the vehicle, and start/stop the engine simply by pushing the ignition button.

To lock the vehicle, the user just moves away from it with the key, or touches a button or specific area on one of the door handles, depending on the ergonomic solution chosen by the manufacturer.
