Volvo's Pedestrian Detection System
Between texting, arguing with your navigation system and toggling between iPod tracks, this is the era of driving distractions. Volvo, the brand who will be inextricably linked to safety (whether they like it or not), knows that. That's why they've introduced the Pedestrian Detection System to models like the S60 sedan. This super-intuitive system can detect a pedestrian in front of the car and warn the driver if that person's about to walk into its path. If the driver fails to respond in time, it automatically activates the car's brake using a radar unit in the front grille and a camera affixed to the rear-view mirror. Pretty dope, right?
