VOLVO is known as the world leader in automotive safety, and now Uber is also one of the few who has mastered autonomous driving systems.
The two companies cooperate since 2016 and have since developed several prototypes. Now they have the XC90, a prestigious SUV that can independently drive on the road. The vehicle is equipped with an Uber system that relies on standard security systems, and there are several back-up systems for turning and braking. Therefore, if a system hangs the management will entrust it to another. Because of this, the vehicle no longer needs human help, the so-called. “Mission Specialist” to the person Uber used in self-propelled cars.
Volvo is convinced that by the middle of the next decade a third of the car on the roads will be fully autonomously managed. The latest technology will be used on next generation Volvo models, so very fast.
