HYUNDAI MOTOR ANNOUNCES NEW REAR OCCUPANT ALERT REDUCING CHILD HEAT HAZARDS

October 3, 2017 - Posted in Hyundai News Posted by:

Fountain Valley, Calif., Oct. 3, 2017 – Hyundai Motor showcased a Rear Occupant Alert system in a video today. The system monitors the rear seats using an ultrasonic sensor that helps to detect the movements of children. The system first reminds drivers to check the rear seats when exiting the vehicle with a message on the center instrument cluster display. If the system detects movement in the rear seats after the driver leaves the vehicle it will honk the horn, flash the lights and send a Blue Link alert to the driver’s smartphone via Hyundai’s Blue Link connected car system. In addition to being forgotten in the car, tragedies have also occurred in cases where children accidentally lock themselves in a car. To prevent issues like these, the rear occupant alert technology will be adopted in future 2019 model year Hyundai vehicles.
