Volvo Introduces Three New Safety Systems [VIDEOS]

Volvo has released details about three new safety systems that are currently under development and part of Volvo’s 2020 goal that nobody should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car.

The first one is a semi-autonomous driving system which uses camera and radar sensors to follow the vehicle ahead. The system automatically controls acceleration, braking and steering at low speeds.

The second one is called Intersection Support, and it automatically brakes the car when a collision could occur at an intersection. “When the light turns green, one car after another turns left. Suddenly an oncoming car drives through the red light – and creates an immediate danger. In this situation, the turning car automatically brakes to avoid a collision.”

Finally, the third one you can see in the video below is called Volvo Animal Detection, that helps prevent collisions with wild animals such as elk and deer. The system automatically brakes the car when an animal impact could occur.
