We Could have Deathproof Cars by 2020
With motor-vehicle deaths on the rise, it's an ambitious goal for one of the worlds most popular car manufacturers to claim that they will produce "deathproof" cars by 2020. According too CNN Money, motor-vehicle deaths rose by 14% in 2015. This is attributed to several factors, including that drivers are more distracted than ever. This has led Volvo to make the promise, to have "deathproof" cars by 2020. Not just one car, but their entire lineup has this goal according to KTUU News. Volvo has already been documented by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as producing some of the safest cars on the road today. The XC90 model has had no fatalities in the United States in the last 4 years.
Volvo is planning on using several new safety features, along with autonomous driving by 2020. This means that your vehicle will be able to use censors and cameras to drive itself. This doesn't mean that you will lose the fun of driving. You will have the option to turn this feature off, while all the safety features will say totally active. Some of these features include adaptive cruise control, auto lane assist, collision avoidance radar, pedestrian and large animal detection. These feature will take advantage of radar, censors and cameras to make sure you and your family remain safe and alive.
So what do you think? Are you ready to hand over total control of your car to an automated system in the next 5 years?
