Nissan puts Signal Shield to reduce smartphone distraction at the wheel
The company’s concept solution is called Signal Shield and represents a modified armrest compartment, covered with conductive wire mesh material, which blocks all cellular, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi signals, thus preventing the drivers from being distracted by their smartphones. Basically, it is a modern incarnation of the good old Faraday cage, discovered in the 19th century, and maybe is just as effective, as we can guess after watching the video that Nissan UK has posted recently in Twitter.
So far, it is an entirely conceptual product that Nissan demonstrates with its Juke cars, but we don’t know yet if the company will offer it in its vehicles soon … or at all. Take a look yourself and, if you wish, share your thoughts about Nissan's “invention”:
