BROMSGROVE, England, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

just-auto's QUBE research platform is now adding a service dedicated to analysing developments in the vehicle access and security market.

It's a sector that has seen major technological advances in recent years.

If we go back a few decades, vehicle security was relatively simple and indeed somewhat limited. A simple blade key was all that was required to open the doors, individually, and this same key was also used for the ignition lock.

In the 1990s, keyless entry emerged, followed by the first iterations of passive entry. Keyless entry uses infra-red or radio transponders to send a signal to the car for the doors to be unlocked and is now commonplace.

Today, advanced technologies are developing still further and the new service will include coverage of new technologies, linked to the connected car, which the industry is adopting. There will also be coverage of vehicle crime and other "mega issues" that surround this. How the industry as a whole, as well as governments, the police and insurance industry respond to the rise in vehicle crime and indeed its changing nature will be examined.

Key suppliers in the sector are also profiled along with the provision of OE supplier market shares for global, North American, European and Japanese supply of door latches and passive entry systems.
