Honda conducted demonstrations of its in-vehicle payments with parking and fueling partners at CES in Las Vegas. The demonstration is part of Honda’s ongoing partnership with Visa Inc., using fuel pumps from Gilbarco Veeder-Root and smart parking meters from IPS Group, Inc.
The Honda Developer Studio created the in-vehicle payment solution, delivered through smartphone integrations. Honda and Visa first joined forces last year, and they are now joined by Gilbarco Veeder-Root and IPS Group, Inc. in a collaboration to enable in-vehicle payments for gasoline and public parking.
Drivers are notified that they can pay for fuel or parking when they are near a smart parking meter or fuel pump. Depending on the services, the purchase amount is displayed on the dashboard, and drivers confirm payment with the touch of a button. Honda is currently in discussions with a several companies to help ease the various payment processes of other car-based transactions.
