Signal shield to stop motorists reaching for their mobiles
May 04, 2017, 22:34
The prototype Signal Shield has been developed and tested in the United Kingdom by Nissan GB on one of its Jukes with a view to it becoming an in-car option.
Nissan has designed a prototype smartphone vault for the armrest of its Juke crossover vehicle, which uses a Faraday cage to block all signals to the phone (yep, even Bluetooth and WiFi). The arm rest of the auto will become said Faraday cage and when a mobile device in the compartment with the lid closed, the concept system will deliver a "silent zone" - essentially blocking all signals, whether cellular, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi connections.
Japanese car-maker Nissan has come up with a new concept that could drastically reduce the rate of illegal phone use on our roads, and save Brits from being slammed with hefty fines. Nissan didn't go into many details, but we guess music content needs to be saved directly on the smartphone, so no streaming while driving, friends.
The idea Nissan has for some of its upcoming rides is to integrate a Faraday cage directly into the armrest. No matter how "good" you think you are at using your cell phone while driving, you're playing with fire.

Nissan GB has adopted a technology that's nearly 200 years old to create a concept solution for reducing the growing problem of smartphone distraction at the wheel. If you're so against the man trying to prevent you from killing yourself by texting and driving, simply don't put your phone in the armrest.
If drivers want to listen to music stored in their smartphone, the Signal Shield compartment comes with USB and Aux ports which allows music to be streamed but which still blocks messaging services. Once you open the lid, the cellular or other wireless connections are automatically re-established and the phone could be connected to the car's Bluetooth system. The company also found that 18 percent of drivers have texted while driving. And it succeeds to that end, because a phone that can't do anything isn't going to distract a driver.
Nissan GB MD, Alex Smith, said: "for those who struggle to ignore the beeps and pings, this concept provides a simple solution in this very 'connected" world we live in'. The tech concept has been demonstrated using a Nissan Juke.
