Cameras, lasers and sensors: Volvo reveals how its driverless cars will work

A hundred Volvo cars will be kitted with sensors, lasers and a cloud-based GPS to eliminate the need of a driver by 2017, the carmaker has revealed. The automaker began its driverless car project in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2014 and expects that driverless cars will be on Swedish motorways in two years’ time. “The key to success is combining sensors, computers and a chassis system in a clever way,” said Erik Coelingh, a technical specialist at Volvo.
