Smart vehicles that reduce and prevent accidents

Volvo's solutions and expected results

Every day, trucks and cars get stuck in traffic for hours when trying to deliver goods or get to work. Many accidents occur in these types of situations. 90% of all traffic accidents arise from the human factor. A reduction in the number of accidents requires increasing the “intelligence” of vehicles and enabling them to communicate with each other and the surrounding infrastructure. Active safety systems enable the driver to be liberated from the monotonous task of maneuvering in traffic jams. When the system is activated, the driver can monitor the vehicle and instead focus attention where it is really needed.

Expected result – to reduce the number of accidents and even avoid potentially dangerous situations through providing assistance to the driver in handling difficult traffic situations.
