Volvo Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake

 
Volvo
has always made safety a staple of its brand – and of its successful
marketing strategy. The company again led the way last year (2010) with Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake, which debuted on the all new 2011 Volvo S60.  
 
The
feature uses radar and a camera to scope out pedestrians in front of
the vehicle and to automatically bring the car to a halt to prevent a
collision. This follows the company’s innovative City Safety System
that employs similar technology to avoid low-speed fender-benders. Both
prove that Volvo is still the leading active safety automaker.

Dhiyanesh is equally crazy about driving cars and writing about them. This guy loves everything with a steering wheel, so, at someday if self-driving cars take up all driving, he is sure to go nuts! He likes sedans of 90s era, esp W140 S-Class and R34 Skyline GT. Apart from usual motoring stuffs, he maintains a strong appetite for sociological perspectives on cars, their historical and cultural footprints. He owns a 1999 Fiat Siena passionately, and drives a Ford Fiesta.
