Video about the technologies developed in the Non-Hut Car and Truck project. The system described in the video is able to provide a complete 360° view of the environment and perceive any potentially threatening objects that drivers would otherwise not be able to see. The 360° view is enhanced by the manoeuvre generator, a new safety feature that uses software to identify collision-free escape routes in all traffic scenarios. The system, which works by constantly analysing threats around the car, can even assist drivers with auto-braking and steering. The technology will help to reach the 2020 Vision, noone should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.
