Volvo, Ericsson partner on high-bandwidth in-vehicle applications

In a recent interview withTech Insider, Volvo North America CEO Lex Kerssemakers said the company’s goal is to use technology to ensure people do not die in its vehicles by 2020.
Kerssemakers told the publication Volvo started working seriously on autonomous driving “four or five years ago. It was based on our vision of not getting killed in the car. It was not a popular thing at the time. And gradually, we realized that if we don’t do something like autonomous drive, where we are using all of the technical features we have already, we won’t get to our 2020 vision. We need it. We need autonomous drive.”
