Kia’ s new aid for deaf car driv­ers

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

An in-car sys­tem that alerts driv­ers with hear­ing dif­fi­cul­ties to im­por­tant sounds around them has won first prize at Kia’s Idea Fes­ti­val.

Called Sym­pony, the sys­tem uses LED lights and vi­bra­tions sent to the driver’s smart­watch to alert them to car horns and other im­por­tant road sounds.

The Korean car giant holds a li­cence to trial pro­to­type driverless cars in Ne­vada in the US.
