In-car cameras and intervention against intoxication, distraction Animation

Description

Volvo Cars reveals a new step in its ambitions to end fatalities in its cars by addressing the issues of intoxication and distraction.Apart from speeding, which the company aims to help combat with a top speed limit, intoxication and distraction are two other primary areas of concern for traffic safety. Together, these three areas constitute the main ‘gaps’ towards Volvo Cars’ vision of a future with zero traffic fatalities and require a focus on human behaviour in the company’s safety work as well.For example, figures by NHTSA show that in the United States, almost 30 per cent of all traffic fatalities in vehicles in 2017 involved intoxicated drivers.Volvo Cars believes intoxication and distraction should be addressed by installing in-car cameras and other sensors that monitor the driver and allow the car to intervene if a clearly intoxicated or distracted driver does not respond to warning signals and is risking an accident involving serious injury or death.That intervention could involve limiting the car’s speed, alerting the Volvo on Call assistance service and, as a final course of action, actively slowing down and safely parking the car.

  • Volvo Animation Advanced Air Cleaner

    Volvo Cars has introduced a world-first premium air quality technology in its cars, allowing Volvo drivers to breathe clean and healthy air inside their vehicles and clean the air of their cabin ahead of their journey. The company’s new Advanced Air Cleaner technology comes with a sensor that measures PM 2.5 levels inside the cabin, creating a feature not available in any other car currently on the market. In China, where PM 2.5 measurements and related information services are well-established, Volvo drivers can also compare air quality inside the cabin to that outside the car. Indicating the amount of fine particulate matter in the air, PM 2.5 is a widely-used measure for air quality. Globally, many urban areas suffer from PM 2.5 values that exceed recommended levels by the World Health Organization, underlining the need to minimize their impact.

  • 2019 Tokyo MS Lexus Teaser light animation

    A two-second teaser video and a succinct two-sentence press release is all we’re getting from Lexus at this point in regards to the company’s upcoming electric concept. Toyota’s luxury division says the new zero-emissions showcar is a window into the company’s electric and autonomous future, so not only will the vehicle lack a combustion engine, but it also might not have a steering wheel.It is believed the electric concept will take after the LF-SA from 2015, therefore we’re expecting a small hatchback developed mainly for city use. Pictured below, the old concept is said to go through some changes to bring it closer to what a production model would look like. That being said, we’re getting the feeling the new concept will still have an exaggerated futuristic design judging by this sole teaser image.

  • Volvo - This is not a car - Animation

    Volvo Cars comes to Automobility LA this year with a world-first: not a single car on the stand. Instead the company will demonstrate its vision, redefining what a car can be. Since motor shows were introduced, the car has always been a centrepiece, on a rotating stage or covered under a silk sheet. Yet cars are changing, the industry is changing and so are the expectations of people who use cars. Volvo at Automobility LA reflects these changes.How consumers experience a car brand is today more important than chrome, leather or horsepower. So on the Volvo stand, visitors will look to the central space where they would expect to find a car, and instead see a simple yet surprising statement: ‘This Is Not A Car’.
