Volvo Is Once Again Leading The Auto Industry With New Technology

Autonomous Car

Is this a good thing or bad thing?

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV has revealed the future of cars, which may be a good and a bad thing. Future vehicles will come with autonomous tech and while we thought self-driving cars were a few years away, it looks like Volvo is setting the standard with the S90. The gorgeous S90 will be the first vehicle in the US that will come with self-driving technology as a standard feature when it goes on sale at the end of this year. If you hate the idea of having a self-driving car, then you're going to hate the new S90.

While Tesla introduced an update that gave the Model S some autonomous capabilities, the S90 will utilize the second generation of Pilot Assist as standard. The automaker’s semi-autonomous technology was first seen on the Volvo XC90 SUV and could be used to track a vehicle driving in front of the SUV to let the system know when to brake, accelerate and steer at speeds of up to 30 mph. However, the second-generation Pilot Assist in the S90 sedan will be complete the same functions at up to 80 mph and without having to follow a vehicle in front of it. The new technology in the S90 is part of a self-imposed goal by Volvo to eliminate deaths and serious injuries in its vehicles by 2020.
