Volvo’s specially adapted V60 (the ‘driverless’ car) has been tested for the first time on British Roads.
At the press of two buttons, the car takes control of the brakes, engine and steering ensuring that the car keeps a safe distance from the car in front. The driver can take back control at any time, however.
The technology is designed as a safety net namely on long tedious journeys where the driver’s attention can wander. In particular, it is designed to make long motorway journeys more relaxed. Volvo aims to include this technology in all future models in the hope that no one will be killed or seriously injured in one of their cars by 2020.
