Volvo Cars Joins the Pan-European Safety Data Sharing Pilot Project




 

Imagine you're driving in the Pacific Palisades area, and you get a warning that there is a potential danger further up the road. A warning like that could make all the difference between unknowingly driving into a dangerous situation and preparing for an obstacle or danger. This will soon be possible with the efforts that Volvo is making to share anonymized safety data or safety services for the safety of everyone on the road.

Volvo Cars is working with service providers, other car makers, and national governments in a visionary, pan-European pilot project to share traffic safety data generated by cars and infrastructure to make the road safer for everyone. This pilot project is headed by the European Data Task Force for the purpose of bringing together some of Europe’s leading vehicle makers, service providers as well as a number of EU member states.

Partners in this pilot will share anonymized safety data or safety services based on that data with the pilot through a cloud-based platform. Volvo will contribute to the pilot by contributing real-time data from its industry-first connected safety technologies: Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert. You can begin to imagine how helpful this could be to know that there are slippery conditions or a vehicle with its hazard lights ahead when driving in the Venice area.

The goal of this pilot project is to improve traffic safety for everyone. The more vehicles that share data in real time, the more safety everyone can enjoy.

 

Los Angeles drivers can already start to picture how car-to-car sharing could greatly improve their daily commute. If you want to explore the current safety technology that is available for the latest models, then browse our current selection of new Volvos!
