  • Patent number: 10589721
    Abstract: A locking system for vehicles is disclosed. After the engine is turned off, the vehicle in accordance with this invention checks whether it is in a garage with limited space. If it is, it leaves the doors unlocked. If it determines that it is not in a garage with limited space, it checks if the car key is inside the car after the driver exited the car. If it is, it sets off an alarm for the driver to retrieve the key. If the car key is not inside the car, it further checks if the key is in close proximity. When it no longer detects the key in its close proximity outside the car, it automatically locks the doors.

  • Publication number: 20140058664
    Abstract: A vehicle locator system comprising: a remote keyless entry transmitter for vehicles (key fob) having a rechargeable battery, a timer, a GPS/RF locator circuit, a first, second and third button and a display window. When the key fob is inserted in the key hole or in the base cradle of the vehicle, the vehicle's main battery charges the rechargeable battery. The first button, when pressed, unlocks the vehicle at the same time it turns on the GPS/RF connection. The second button, when pressed, locks the vehicle and records the location of the vehicle. The timer maintains the GPS/RF circuit on for a predetermined period of time. The third button, when pressed, shows the location of the vehicle almost immediately on the display window of the key fob by showing the address of the location alongwith direction and the distance to the vehicle.
