Volvo wants to start a discussion about whether the automaker by applying constraints to change the behavior of drivers. As mark is ready to take “active responsibility” for the security, she believes such intervention is their right or even duty.

The Swedish brand is celebrating the 60th anniversary of three-point seat belt — “probably the most important invention in the history of automotive safety.” This device, which became the industry standard, saved, estimated to Volvo, more than a million lives. What’s next? The company has already decided in 2020 to limit the maximum speed of their cars at around 180 km/h Now put forward three initiatives: the E. V. A. project (Equal for all vehicles), key Care Key and the camera that monitors the driver’s behaviour. It’s all part of the strategy Vision 2020, under which the dead and seriously injured in a new Volvo car should not be.

Project E. V. A. aims to provide the same level of safety in the car for everyone, but the emphasis is on the protection of women. After all, they are, according to Volvo, are at greater risk of an accident due to anatomical features. For example, the cervical spine in men stronger.

Initiative E. V. A., the company are willing to share their research in the security sphere, ongoing since the 1950s. More than a hundred articles based on a thorough analysis of tens of thousands of real-world accidents. In particular, the digital library offers access to content on protection against whiplash and injuries of the lumbar spine.

Key Care Key will go “in the” all Volvo cars from 2021. It allows owners to set speed limit for yourself, family members and friends who use one machine. The idea is that Care Key is particularly useful for teenagers, just got a license.

In early 2020-ies Volvo promises to provide the next generation platform SPA, which is called the SPA2. In the basic equipment of all models, built on a “truck”, will include a system of cameras and other sensors that continuously monitors the state of the driver. The main task — the fight against drunk driving (cause 30% of accidents) and distraction.

The prototype two cameras mounted at the upper corners of the windshield, but the exact number of “eyes” and their location in the cabin will be released at a later date.

If the “obviously drunk” or distracted the driver does not react to the warning signals a long time looking at the road, sitting with eyes closed, acting too slowly or, on the contrary, extremely rebuilt — the car gets a right to intervene. It limits the speed alerts support through the service Volvo on Call, and in an extreme case, brakes to a full stop and finds a safe Parking. Except that the police is not, though…

However, along with the carrot there is the carrot in the form of “financial benefits”: good driver not only avoid trouble, but will be much less to pay for insurance. Soon Volvo will announce the first of several agreements with the insurance companies in Sweden. Specific terms of the transaction will depend on conditions in a particular market.
