Auto vehicle Proximity Detection System help

I am looking for a Proximity Detection Solution for a vehicle application.  This would be a system that detects “Approach” and “Departure” of a driver that is carrying a KEY (Ignition) FOB. 


  • From an Approach perspective, we would need the system to detect the person carrying the FOB when his/her hand is ~10-20cm from the exterior door handle and unlock the door.


  • From a Departure perspective the system would lock the vehicle’s doors when it detects the FOB being ~10-20 ft away from the car.


Any thoughts from my Automotive Design team members?  Suppiers?
