It will be coming to Volvo vehicles across Europe and the UK later this week 

First trialled in Sweden and Norway in 2016 before now being rolled out further 

Car detects a hazard and flags it with GPS and this is sent to other Volvo cars  


 

볼보자동차, 곧 GPS 도로 위험 감지 시스템 탑재


  볼보 자동차 소유자들은 곧 GPS를 통해 다른 차량으로부터 다가오는 도로 위험에 대한 정보를 받을 것이다.

스웨덴 회사가 만든 모든 신차에 사용되는 볼보의 클라우드 기반 시스템을 통해 정보를 공유할 것이다. 


이는 운전자가 위험할 수 있는 도로를 향해 가고 있는지를 운전자에게 알리고 그에 따라 운전을 조정할 수 있도록 하기 위해 사용될 것이다.




자동차가 구덩이나 미끄러운 도로와 같은 위험을 감지할 경우, 자체 GPS 시스템을 통해 다른 도로 사용자에게 이를 표시한다. 


이 시스템은 2016년까지 스웨덴과 노르웨이에서 성공적으로 시행된 후 이번 주 후반 유럽과 영국 전역의 볼보 차량에 장착될 예정이다.

Volvo car owners will soon receive information on upcoming road hazards from other vehicles via their GPS.


Information will be shared through Volvo's cloud-based system which is used by all new vehicles made by the Swedish firm. 


This will then be used to inform drivers if they are heading towards a potentially dangerous stretch of road and allow them to adjust their driving accordingly.


 

Volvo car owners will soon receive information on upcoming road hazards from other vehicles and see it on their GPS. The sharing of informing will inform drivers if they are heading towards a potentially dangerous spot


If a car detects a hazard - such as a pot-hole or a slippery road - it will flag it to other road users on their own GPS system. 




The system will be coming to Volvo vehicles across Europe and the UK later this week after successful trials in Sweden and Norway dating back to 2016.  


Volvo is pioneering a range of safety-orientated technology designed to decrease accident frequency. 


 

Start-up Caareys has built two systems that utilise radar, with one performing analysis of heart rate, breath rate and driver health condition while its other project counts the number of passengers and positioning of them


BMW unveiled gaze recognition technology at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year that will let drivers control the inside of the car using only their eyes 


The Swedish car manufacturer has already implemented a plan to limit the top speeds of some of their cars to just 112mph (180kph) as well as installing cameras into its cars to detect if the driver is drunk.  


If it detects the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs it can then take control of the vehicle, reduce its speed and safely bring it to a stop on the side of the road.  




Volvo's latest initiative would use the GPS systems of the cars and in-built sensors to detect any road issues and records its location.
