Volvo's Autonomous Traffic Jam Assistance in Action [VIDEO]

Volvo’s new traffic jam assistace function technology automatically follows the vehicle in front in slow-moving queues up to 30mph, will be ready for production in 2014.

“This technology makes driving more relaxed in the kind of monotonous queuing that is a less attractive part of daily driving in urban areas. It offers you a safe, effortless drive in slow traffic,” says Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research and Development of Volvo Car Corporation.

The traffic jam assistance function is an evolution of the current Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Aid technology, which was introduced in the all-new Volvo V40 earlier in 2012. It will use the same radars and cameras used by the City Safety and Pedestrian Detection technologies.
