Volvo to launch autonomous driving experiment

Volvo plans to launch China’s most advanced autonomous driving experiment, in which local drivers will test autonomous cars on public roads in everyday driving conditions.

Volvo expects the experiment to involve up to 100 cars, and will negotiate with interested cities to see which is able to provide the necessary permissions and infrastructure.

Volvo believes the introduction of this technology promises to reduce accidents, as well as free up congested roads, reduce pollution, and allow drivers to use their time in cars more constructively.

The company’s autonomous driving system is part of its pledge that no one will be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo by the year 2020.
