Volvo to install cameras in all new models

It's part of the manufacturer's effort to end fatalities in their vehicles by 2020. 

Volvo to install cameras in all new models

Swedish car manufacturer Volvo has announced it’s to equip all of its new models with onboard cameras in an effort to tackle the problem of drink-driving. 

Working alongside other on-board sensors, the advanced camera will be able to detect when a driver is intoxicated and behaving dangerously. 

It can then take full control of the car and initiate suitable measures to protect any passengers and other motorists. 

For example, if the camera senses that a driver is excessively weaving across lanes or exhibiting slow reaction times, it can limit the vehicle’s speed, alert Volvo’s On Call assistance service and, in really extreme cases, bring everything to a safe stop.  

This decision comes as part of their commitment to road safety and Vision 2020 pledge which aims to eliminate road accident fatalities in all Volvo cars by 2020. 

They identified the three main causes of death on the road, excessive speed, distraction and intoxication, then set out to try and prevent each one. 

Further safety features set to be introduced in 2021 include Volvo limiting every new car manufactured after then to a top speed of 112mph and the Care Key, which will allow motorists to set their own limit on how fast a vehicle is able to travel.
