Sam joins Leo to talk about the latest car news. Lately, Sam drove Hyundai's Premium e-Vehicle, the Genesis GV70. It uses biometrics to authenticate payments for gas, keyless entry, and even the expansion of ultra-wideband wifi. Biometrics can also be used to watch the driver in order to make sure they are paying attention to the road. Sensors will monitor driver behavior with infrared cameras and alert the driver to keep watch of the road. It's possible that in the future, drivers will need face ID to start the car, an ideal security measure.

Ford is working on a driver workload sensor system that will monitor the driver for increased heart rate and stress levels, engaging do not disturb automatically or driver-assist when the driver's vitals are too high. It can also read if there's a baby in the back seat and remind you to get her out when you leave the vehicle. 

What about if you need a valet to park your car? You can use it to engage in valet mode to prevent them from taking a joy ride in your car.
