Slippery road warning shared with other cars

Slippery road warning shared with other cars
Volvo Cars is joining forces with road administrators in a pilot project in which road friction information from individual cars is shared within a cloud-based system. When the test car detects an icy or slippery road patch, the information is relayed via Volvo Cars’ database to other vehicles that are approaching the slippery area. The information is also sent to the road administrator. This helps the administrator and contracted entrepreneurs to quickly address changed conditions.
