Volvo’s New Large Animal Detection, Automatic Breaking Technology

By: | March 31st, 2016

One of the scariest and potentially most dangerous events an automobile driver can face is an animal or human being on the roadway. We’ve all experienced it with animals, and whether large or small, the desire not to hit it often leads to unpredictable reactions by drivers. When a driver reacts suddenly or overreacts, human lives are in jeopardy, and serious damage to property can occur, not to mention the life of the animal.

Volvo cars have long had a reputation for being safe due to their design and engineering. Now Volvo’s mission is to manufacture automobiles by 2020 that will be so safe that no one will be killed in a Volvo in any circumstances.

Part of Volvo’s plan is to introduce a new feature called the Large Animal Detection with Automatic Braking safety system in its 2017 S90 and XC90 vehicles.

The following video by Volvo explains its Large Animal Detection with Automatic Braking system.
