Volvo Auto is known to build vehicles that are known for their safety features. The Swedish-based manufacturer has made claims that no individual will die in their vehicle by 2020. Now they also confirm that their fully autonomous vehicle will go on sale at the same time.
Nvidia's DriveMe program will be utilised by Volvo vehicles for autonomous technology. DriveMe will be making its debut in London by 2017. It will also be launching in countries like Sweden and China. Approximately 100 XC90's will be utilising this tech in each country.
An autopilot system by Volvo Auto is most likely to be featured on several of their vehicles by 2017. Currently, Volvo has no plans to introduce autonomous driving systems in the United States of America. This is due the different rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles.
The goal to achieve by Volvo is that no individual ever dies in their vehicles. Introduction of autonomous systems is a part of this goal. Volvo officials believe that the faster this system is adopted, more lives within vehicles will be saved.
