According to Extreme Tech, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis will come with a built-in system that will allow it to automatically slow down in places where it knows there are speed cameras.
Functionally the tech is very simple — and it makes me wonder why no other car maker has implemented it before now. Basically, the 2015 Genesis is loaded up with a big list of speed camera locations. When you come within 800 meters (half a mile) of a speed camera (measured via GPS), the car will show you the speed limit and beep if you’re going too fast. If you’re still breaking the speed limit when you reach the camera, the car’s Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) tech will kick in, ensuring you don’t get a ticket. It isn’t entirely clear where Hyundai is getting its speed camera location data from, but it’s probably SCDB (a crowdsourced speed camera database) or something similar.
