Saving Lives with the Hyundai Rear Occupant Alert System

Hyundai makes safety a priority and is continually working to create innovative advancements in their vehicles’ safety technologies. One impressive feature that has been available on select Hyundai models more recently is the automaker’s Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) door-logic system.  Hyundai has announced a new technology that complements this ROA door-logic system, the Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert, and it will be available on 2022 models. Both of these systems working together will help make sure children are not accidentally left in an unattended car.

“Heatstroke in vehicles is preventable and we are doing our part to prevent this,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “We have great systems that use both door logic memory and motion sensors to help prevent children and pets from being forgotten in the car, but it also helps in case children accidentally lock themselves in.”

How does the Hyundai Rear Occupant Alert System Work?

Hyundai currently offers two types of Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) systems:

ROA door-logic system – The ROA door-logic system detects if a rear door was closed or opened before the car was started. It then reminds the driver to check the rear seat with a message on the center cluster display when exiting the vehicle.

Ultrasonic ROA system – The Ultrasonic ROA system has both the door-logic technology and an ultrasonic sensor that detects the movements in the second-row seats. If the system detects movement in the second-row after the driver leaves the vehicle and locks the doors, it will honk the horn and send an alert to the driver’s smartphone.

What Hyundai models have ROA systems?

The 2020 Santa Fe and Palisade were available with ROA door-logic systems as standard equipment. Both the ROA door-logic system and the ROA ultrasonic system will be available on the 2022 Hyundai models.
