  • Autonomous drive paves the way for more efficient time-management behind the wheel, e.g. in commuting situations with traffic jams. You can safely interact via phone or tablets or simply choose to relax. The self-driving technology used in the pilot ´Drive Me – Self-driving cars for sustainable mobility´- allows you to hand over the driving to the car when the circumstances are appropriate. Still from the video Autonomous driving by Volvo Car Group.

  • Volvo Car Group has developed an ingenious concept for autonomous parking. The driver uses a mobile phone application to activate the autonomous parking and then walks away from the car. The self-parking car uses sensors to localise and navigate to a free parking space. The procedure is reversed when the driver comes back to pick up the car. Volvo Cars’ smart, driverless car also interacts safely and smoothly with other cars and pedestrians in the car park.

  • Volvo Car Group has developed an ingenious concept for autonomous parking. Combining autonomous driving with detection and auto brake for other objects makes it possible for the self-parking car to interact safely with other cars and pedestrians in the car park. Speed and braking are adapted for smooth integration in the parking environment. The driver uses a mobile phone application to activate the autonomous parking and then walks away from the car. The vehicle uses sensors to localise and navigate to a free parking space. The procedure is reversed when the driver comes back to pick up the car.

  • The self-driving cars in the pilot ´Drive Me – Self-driving cars for sustainable mobility´ have sensors that keep track of the car and the surrounding environment. The cars will also be connected to a Volvo cloud to get map data and other information from a traffic control center. Still from the video Autonomous driving by Volvo Car Group.

Autonomous vehicles are increasingly being tested on public roads around the globe, including Nissan in Japan and Google here in the US, and now Volvo is preparing to test its own self-driving cars on the streets of Sweden. In conjunction with the state government, Volvo's Drive Me project kicks off next year, starting with the development of customer research and infrastructure technology before setting 100 self-driving cars loose on the streets of Gothenburg in 2017.
