Swedish automobile manufacturer Volvo is to show off its latest leaps forward in the quest to improve safety on the roads.
The company is championing three concepts – Vehicle to Vehicle Communication, Collision Avoidance by Auto Steering and Auto Brake for pedestrians – as part of this.
All three represent new technology which can interpret dangerous situations and respond accordingly.
Company spokesperson Jonas Ekmark commented that the challenges of pioneering such a system are finding out which areas are "most urgent and effective".
"With communication between vehicles, and between vehicles and the traffic environment, a large number of todays accidents could be avoided," he said.
Meanwhile, CNNMoney.com reports that the company has taken to recalling some 49,500 vehicles from around the world after a problem was discovered in the diesel filters of C30, V50 and S40 cars with 1.6-litre engines.
"After a certain time of driving, the filter becomes full more quickly than we had estimated," said spokesperson Maria Bohlin.
