Volvo announces next-level safety technology

Volvo has announced next-level safety technology for its upcoming XC90 release, according to whatcar.com.

The Swedish vehicle manufacturer has developed technology that can not only detect changes in road surface and barriers but can also see pedestrians in dark conditions.

The latest model may also benefit from new technology in vehicle security as well as safety, with Volvo renowned for creating reliable, safe vehicles.  

Autoexpress.co.uk reports that Volvo is committed to preventing anyone being killed or seriously injured in its cars by 2020. It has been developing technology accordingly by focusing on the situations that cause the majority of motoring fatalities.

An autonomous parking system has also been fitted to the new model, giving users the capability to get out of the car and tell the XC90 to find a parking space.

Claimed as an industry first for passenger vehicles, Volvo's latest model can detect large animals in both light and dark conditions and brake to lessen the impact or avoid it altogether.

With deer frequently being hit on Britain's roads, this new technology may be extremely useful to motorists. The XC90 is thought to have the highest level of safety equipment and technology than any other model made by the manufacturer.
