Genesis GV70's Rear Seat Radar

Automaker Genesis wants to help save the lives of both pets and children with the advent of new technology that replaces ultrasonic sensor with high-precision radar. The difference between this radar and the previous generation is that the very high frequency detect subtle movements; Genesis uses the example of a baby’s chest rising and falling during a nap. In a Genesis G70, when you turn off the engine and open the driver’s side door after having closed the rear door or tailgate, the “check rear seats” warning appears in the instrument cluster. After the first alert, if any movement is detected inside after the doors are locked, the secondary alert kicks in. At that point, the hazard lights flash and the horn sounds. Genesis Connect subscribers also receive a text to warn them that a person or pet is still in the car.
