Google wants you to carry your driving license inside your mobile phone
Over the past decade, we have seen how the smartphone has become a big solution, replacing the many devices we have used and still use today. Including radio, alarm clock, GPS … etc
Now Google has started to work on the API that will allow governments to apply the driver license on Android smartphones, although it is not something we will see soon but it is interesting.
This is especially important in countries such as the United States, where the card acts as an identity document because there is no national identity card.
Google knows very well that it is difficult for us to leave the house without taking our phone with us, but in addition we have to take other things. One of them is the driver’s license, which is mandatory if we take the car to many places.
So, Google has started working on an API that will allow us to securely integrate our driver’s license data into the phone so that we can display it when the police ask us to do so by showing them a mobile phone only.
A potential problem with this system may occur when you carry out your phone’s battery. Here, in this case, we can not do anything with the phone in theory. However, Google is working on a new section of the phone that allows you to use this function even if your phone does not have enough power to operate it. They have not yet determined how they will work in detail but surely something must come as a standard in new smartphones.
