Volvo Trucks has developed new technology which can dramatically reduce the risk of accidents caused by a limited field of vision. It enables a vehicle to do a 360 degree scan of everything in its surroundings. The vehicle evaluates information from multiple sources simultaneously, functioning much like the human mind does, and suggests actions to avoid any incidents. The technology is now in the test phase and may become reality five to ten years from now. The technology is the result of a unique research project called Non-Hit Car and Truck, in cooperation with Volvo Cars. For the first time ever it is possible to enable a vehicle to register and evaluate everything that is happening in its surroundings and suggest actions to avoid accidents, such as collisions with pedestrians, cyclists or other vehicles. If the driver does not respond to the suggested actions, the steering or braking system can be activated autonomously.

"Our vision for traffic safety is to have no accidents involving Volvo trucks," says Carl Johan Almqvist, Volvo Trucks' Traffic and Product Safety Director. "This unique technology has taken us yet another step towards our vision and will hopefully save many lives in the future."
