New dummy enhances active safety

New dummy enhances active safety
Volvo Cars' new crash test dummy Bob. Bob is working as pedestrian dummy to help the engineers to develop preventative safety systems. Volvo will introduce a new auto braking function in 2010, a Pedestrian Safety feature that will detect and give an audible and visual signal to warn the driver if he/she is about to drive into a human. If the driver does not react the vehicle will auto brake.
