Following its home-access deliveries, which allows drivers to leave packages inside your home while you’re gone, Amazon is further developing its delivery service — now to the trunk of your cars. In partnership with GM and Volvo, Amazon Key In-Car will offer Prime subscribers the service in its 37 available cities beginning today.
Drivers — using the car’s GPS location, license plate number, and reference picture — will find your vehicle and use the Amazon Key app to talk to an OnStar or Volvo representative from your account, who will then unlock the car for the driver remotely. Amazon has plans to roll out the service to more automakers over time.
In related news, Amazon is also working on a home robot aide.
