New Volvo will detect if its driver has drunk alcohol and slow down if they show signs of being over the limit

  • Volvo cars will use cameras and sensors to spot if the motorist is drink driving
  • The Swedish car maker hopes to get the technology into its cars by next year
  • It will be fitted on all larger models such as the XC90 SUV before smaller cars 
  • Volvo is trying to build cars in which no one is killed or severely injured by 2020 

Volvo is to install technology in its self-driving cars that can detect if the driver is drunk.

The Swedish carmaker said that from next year all new vehicles will have cameras and sensors to spot if the motorist is showing signs of being over the limit.

Cars will slow down by before ringing the Volvo call centre where a member of the customer service will speak to the driver and take over the car if necessary.

The self-driving vehicle may even park the car by itself if the driver is unresponsive.

The new safety features are part of the manufacturers pledge to eliminate all passenger deaths.

Volvo cars will be able to detect if drivers are intoxicated and slow down from next year when the technology will be introduced. It will be added to larger models such as the XC90 before smaller models

Volvo has a reputation for car safety. It was the first car maker to add a three-point seatbelt, that goes across the chest and the waist, in 1959

The advanced technology will be fitted on all larger models such as the XC90 SUV before being added to smaller cars in the range.

Sensors in the car will monitor changes in the physical movements of both the driver and the car to determine if an intervention is required.

Cameras focused on the driver's eyes will look for changes such as pupil dilatation. while sensors on the steering wheel can tell how reactive the individual is behind the wheel.

This also means intervening if the drivers appears too tired or distracted by checking a mobile phone – one of the biggest factors causing road accidents.

Other sensors fitted to the car itself will sense whether the car is moving erratically.

The system designed to prevent dangerous driving is made up two-stage alarm system.

If a safety concern is detected, the car will first broadcast a warning to the driver to take caution, and if nothing changes then the car will slow down while alerting the Volvo call centre in an 'emergency state' response.   

More severe measures built into the self-driving vehicle include an emergency stop and the car pulling over.

The Swedish carmaker also plans to add a safety key feature which will allow car owners to set a maximum speed for their vehicle before lending it to a younger or more inexperienced driver

Volvo also plans to introduce Care Key, which allows the buyer to set a speed limit for themselves or before lending the car to younger or inexperienced drivers.

It will be standard on all cars from 2021. The firm’s chief executive Hakan Samuelsson said it was talking to insurers to offer favourable terms to customers who were using the new safety features.

‘If we can encourage and support better behaviour with technology that helps drivers to stay out of trouble, that should logically also have a positive impact on insurance premiums,’ he said.

It comes after Volvo said last month that it would introduce a 112mph speed limit on all new vehicles.

Mr Samuelsson admitted that while it may put off customers keen on driving at a high speed, it may win over parents who prefer a car with strong safety features.

Volvo is building a driverless car as it aims to achieve a third of its sales from self-driving cars by 2025.

HOW WILL THE NEW VOLVO DEAL WITH DRUNK DRIVERS?

Sensing a danger

Sensors in the car will monitor changes in the physical movements of both the driver and the car to determine if an intervention is required

Cameras focused on the driver's facial features will sense changes to pupil dilatation and whether the eyes are open.

Sensors on the steering wheel can tell how reactive the individual's hands are behind the wheel.

Other sensors fitted to the car itself will sense whether the car is moving erratically.

Intervening  

The intervention system is made up two-stage alarm system.

If a safety concern is detected, the car will first broadcast a warning to the driver to take caution, and if nothing changes then the car will slow down and enter an an 'emergency state' where it alerts the Volvo call centre.   

More severe measures built into the self-driving vehicle include an emergency stop and the car pulling over.

The technology will be used more widely than for drink driving.

The car will similarly intervene if the drivers appears too tired or distracted by checking a mobile phone – one of the biggest factors causing road accidents.
