Volvo showcases latest safety technology at SMMT

21 August 2013 #SMMT News

Volvo Cars is showcasing the latest applications of its world-renowned safety technology in an exhibition at SMMT’s Westminster headquarters. Featuring two cars from Volvo’s current model line up, the exhibit begins today and runs for two weeks, coinciding with an exclusive event in which selected members of the media will experience Volvo’s pioneering Autonomous Drive.

Displayed in SMMT’s showroom are the Volvo XC60 and V60, which both benefit from the Swedish manufacturer’s latest safety technology, including City Safety, which senses an impending collision at low speeds and automatically activates the brakes to avoid an accident. Other innovative technology such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, which further reduces the risk of a collision with other road users, are also offered on many models in Volvo’s range.

In 2014, with the launch of the new XC90, Volvo will introduce a raft of new vehicle safety technology, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Steer Assist. It will also unveil its Road Edge and Barrier Detection system with Steer Assist as well as Pedestrian Detection in Darkness.

This will be followed in coming years with Autonomous Parking, allowing the vehicle to park itself with no need for driver input, and an Animal Detection system.

During its residency at SMMT, Volvo will also showcase a number of its latest innovations to a select group of influential individuals, including its ground-breaking Autonomous Drive technology, which allows the car to be driven with little or no input from the driver.
