Hyundai Genesis Technology Could Outsmart Speed Cameras
Now before you get too excited, the technology isn’t actually on the market right now, but Hyundai has the potential to save you from paying speed camera fines somewhere down the road. Reportedly, the Hyundai Genesis (in Australia, mind you) could one day use its GPS and braking technology in tandem to detect speed cameras, alert speeding drivers, and slow down the cars if the drivers do not slow down themselves.
According to Drive.com.au, Hyundai spokesman, Guido Schenken, told reporters in Seoul, “It knows there is a speed camera there, it knows where the speed camera is, and it will adopt the correct speed.”
He added, “It will beep 800 meters before a camera and show the legal speed, and it will beep if your speed is over that.”
The feature for the Genesis would work for both fixed speed and average speed cameras, but it wouldn’t be successful over mobile speed cameras and, of course, actual highway patrol officers.
The Hyundai Genesis will appear on the scene in Australia in October of this year, but according to the report, the technology will not be immediately available.
