Car Safety Tech at the L.A. International Auto Show: Next Gen Safety

I think the most impressive vehicle safety innovations, show after show, come from Volvo. They have done an excellent job of meshing safety regulations with advanced technology to take it all a step further. They have a system in their vehicles called “city safety” which is a camera-based detection system that uses a laser-based radar to create a field of vision in front of the car to detect people. The system recognizes the difference between a person and, say, a shopping cart, and will stop the vehicle along with alerting the driver.
