The 2015 Hyundai Genesis Anticipates and Slows for Speed Cameras

You might not realize that a speed camera lurks just beyond the next bend, but the all-new Hyundai Genesis does, and it can save you from a ticket. That’s because the 2015 Genesis sedan features a system that automatically slows down the car when approaching a speed camera. Instead of using radar-detection systems, which are illegal in many states, the Genesis relies on its onboard navigation system and a database of known speed camera locations to; first, alert drivers of an upcoming speed camera using an audible tone, and second, use the vehicle’s automatic braking system to slow the car down if it’s above the limit.

For now, this new tech will only appear on Genesis sedans for sale in South Korea, but there’s always a chance the system could make its way over to the US. It certainly poses a few important legal questions. If the system does hop the Pacific, be warned. Just because your car can predict a run-in with a speed camera, doesn’t mean you’ll be immune to a speeding violation. Police cars with radar traps can still knick you, so perhaps it’s best to just keep an eye on the ‘ol speedo. RELATED: See more photos of the 2013 Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis Concept Source: CNBC
