    Drive Me: Volvo Cars Autonomous Driving Project -- Alternative Infrastructures

    Published on May 6, 2014

    Volvo Car Group's groundbreaking project 'Drive Me' -- which will feature 100 self-driving Volvos on public roads in everyday driving conditions -- is rapidly moving towards its kick-off in 2017.
    Implementation of self-driving vehicles paves the way for an innovative and more cost-efficient approach to infrastructure design. It also allows present infrastructure to be used more efficiently. This video demonstrates some of the possibilities.

    Run-off road crashes – world-first solution by Volvo Cars

    Published on Dec 18, 2014

    Run-off road crashes are one of the most common car accidents, exposing driver and passengers to sudden, violent and random movement that can cause spinal injuries.

    A visit to a theme park inspired Volvo Cars’ safety expert Anders Axelson to our latest safety innovation, taking us one step closer to our vision - that nobody will be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo by 2020.

    Teaming up industrial robot manufacturer ABB, a robot that mimics and simulates run-off road crashes has been developed. Not only is this a quicker and cheaper way to test new safety solutions, but it has also brought two new vital parts to the run-off road protection in the all-new XC90 - namely ‘retractable safety belts’ and ‘energy absorbing seats’.

    By keeping driver and passenger in an upright posture while cushioning the impact, the vertical forces they are exposed to can be reduced by up to one third. Read the full story over at:

    Volvo media streaming for autonomous cars

    Published on Jan 4, 2016

    At the 2016 CES Volvo revealed that it is developing intelligent, high bandwidth, streaming capabilities with its technology partner, Ericsson, that will ensure drivers and passengers get the most out of their time travelling in an autonomous Volvo.

    Autonomous drive will bring a paradigm shift to mobile net demands. Volvo and Ericsson believe that this shift will see an increased need for consistent and high-bandwidth coverage outside densely populated areas such as city centres and suburbs.

    Utilising Ericsson’s network and cloud expertise, Volvo Cars’ aim is to deliver a high quality, interruption-free experience in its cars whilst on the move. By predicting your route and looking ahead at network conditions, content can be tailored to the duration of each trip and intelligently buffered to deliver a high quality and uninterrupted viewing experience.

    By learning the most common routes and times of travel and understanding media preferences, future Volvo cars will be able to provide one-click navigation and a customised preference based list of potential media - allowing customers to choose routes and select content tailored to the amount of autonomous time that is available during their commute.
