Hyundai Smart Phone Technology to Help Combat Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is one of the biggest reasons car accidents happen today, and cell phones are quickly becoming the main reason to blame. New Hyundai smart phone technology is hoping to bring that distraction to an end.

Hyundai officially filed a patent that would allow them to start testing out their new technology to decrease distracted driving due to cell phones. Disabling the phone would be the biggest step in eliminating the distraction. In order to make the technology a reality, antennas would be placed around the vehicle to monitor cell signals.

Based on a variety of factors like speed and proximity of the phone to the driver, certain features of the smart phone will be shut off. In order for the tech to work, a software program or application would need to be downloaded to the phone.

Hyundai is still figuring out all of the details regarding the new technology and reported that it would be a few years before it is placed in vehicles. In any case, we’re really excited to see Hyundai stepping up and helping to eliminate distracted driving!
