Volvo Roam Delivery service brings stuff to your car

Volvo has announced a strange, yet interesting new delivery service. The service is called Volvo Roam Delivery and the idea is to turn your car into a drop off and pick up spot for delivery services. The Roam Delivery service uses Volvo digital keys to allow the delivery person to access you car when you aren't there to leave things or pick up packages.

The owner of the car would get a message when the package is ready for delivery at their car. A onetime use digital key would unlock the vehicle for the delivery person. Once the car is open and then locked again the owner would get a message letting them know the delivery was complete.

The Roam Delivery service would go anywhere the car might be parked and would allow the driver to choose their car as a delivery point when shopping online. Volvo will be showing the system off at MWC 2014 next month. It’s unclear at this point when the service will launch officially.

Volvo describes the system, "Having accepted the delivery, he or she then hands out a digital key and can track when the car is opened and then locked again. Once the pick-up or drop-off is completed, the digital key ceases to exist. The system is based on the functionality of the telematics app Volvo On Call, which, among other things, makes it possible to remotely heat or cool the car and see its position or fuel level via the mobile phone."
