Volvo enlists auto safety group Autoliv for driverless car project

Volvo and Autoliv aim to introduce active safety systems in 100 driverless cars that will be used by commuters in Gothenburg from 2017. “Autonomous driving will make our roads better and safer. The sooner we can develop the necessary technologies and start offering them in our cars the better,” Volvo Cars’ chief executive Hakan Samuelsson said in a statement. The project – described by Volvo as the world’s first large-scale initiative with autonomous driving – began in 2013 and involves Swedish transport authorities and universities.
