Hyundai Genesis Can Slow Down for Speed Cameras

Hyundai Genesis Can Slow Down for Speed Cameras

There’s a lot to like about the 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan, but this might be its coolest feature yet.

At the vehicle’s launch in Seoul, Hyundai spokesman Guido Schenken revealed that the new luxury sedan can identify speed cameras and automatically slow down if drivers are in for a ticket. According to Schenken, the Genesis “knows there is a speed camera there, it knows where the speed camera is and it will adopt the correct speed.”

The Genesis sedan will use a combination of GPS and braking technology to help its drivers avoid getting speeding tickets. It will warn the driver 2,625 feet in advance before a speed camera with an audible beep if the driver is exceeding the speed limit. In addition, the car will show the legal speed to the driver and will work for fixed speed cameras and average speed cameras, though it will not give the driver an advantage over mobile speed cameras or the highway patrol.

The feature won’t be available immediately on the Genesis sedan and will likely be offered on models that are equipped with the automated braking technology found in the active cruise control system. Unfortunately, Hyundai doesn’t plan to offer the technology in the U.S.

    Where will they offer it then? In South Korea where nobody speeds? Meh.

  • _Hyundai_ doesn’t, but if the Genesis is compatible, then the aftermarket might be able to hook owners up.
