This article fails to describe how easy/complex it is to steal those cars with this technology. You will need at least two people, plus some fancy electronics, plus you need to be close to the car's key fob. The latter part means that if the key fob is placed near the front door or a window it can be reached by the thieves. But if the key fob is placed more in the center of the house (assuming you're at home) the thieves are not able to get close enough to it to pick up its signals.
So, nothing has changed, really.
TBD cable channel rocks!
The safety of one's car shouldn't be dependent on where the keys are in the house though.
This technology could be a solution to the so-called "relay station attack" to open car doors: https://www.forbes.com/sites/samabu...ebut-nxp-uwb-technology-in-2019/#7da7d7df26e8
However, the automotive industry is slow in adopting new technologies, so it could take quite a number of years before you'll find this technology in your next car.
