Video: Volvo Trucks Develops Technology That Offers 360 Degree Scanning

Volvo Trucks has developed technology that will do a 360 degree can of a truck’s surroundings. Volvo says the technology will “suggest actions to avoid incidents.”

The technology was developed to help protect pedestrians and cyclists, Volvo said.

“Today’s Volvo trucks are designed to eliminate any vehicle blind spots. But in situations with heavy traffic it is easy for a driver to miss something important such as an approaching cyclist on the vehicle’s passenger side. Now we can solve this issue and help the driver see and understand everything that is happening around the vehicle”, says Carl Johan Almqvist, Volvo Trucks’ Traffic and Product Safety Director.
