沃尔沃用GPS云共享危险道路状况的信息

【沃尔沃用GPS云共享危险道路状况的信息】沃尔沃车主很快就能通过GPS从其他车辆那里获得即将到来的道路危险信息,信息将通过沃尔沃基于云计算的系统共享。如果一辆汽车检测到危险,比如坑洞或路面滑,它会用自己的GPS系统向其他道路使用者发出警告。该系统将于本周晚些时候在欧洲和英国的沃尔沃汽车上推出,此前该系统已在瑞典和挪威进行了成功的试验,试验时间可以追溯到2016年。

Volvos will communicate with each other and use a GPS cloud to share information about dangerous road conditions including ice

  • It will be coming to Volvo vehicles across Europe and the UK later this week 
  • First trialled in Sweden and Norway in 2016 before now being rolled out further 
  • Car detects a hazard and flags it with GPS and this is sent to other Volvo cars  

Volvo car owners will soon receive information on upcoming road hazards from other vehicles via their GPS.

Information will be shared through Volvo's cloud-based system which is used by all new vehicles made by the Swedish firm.

This will then be used to inform drivers if they are heading towards a potentially dangerous stretch of road and allow them to adjust their driving accordingly.

If a car detects a hazard - such as a pot-hole or a slippery road - it will flag it to other road users on their own GPS system.

The system will be coming to Volvo vehicles across Europe and the UK later this week after successful trials in Sweden and Norway dating back to 2016.

Volvo is pioneering a range of safety-orientated technology designed to decrease accident frequency.

The Swedish car manufacturer has already implemented a plan to limit the top speeds of some of their cars to just 112mph (180kph) as well as installing cameras into its cars to detect if the driver is drunk.

If it detects the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs it can then take control of the vehicle, reduce its speed and safely bring it to a stop on the side of the road.

Volvo's latest initiative would use the GPS systems of the cars and in-built sensors to detect any road issues and records its location.

Volvo has also developed a system known as 'hazard light alert'.

This sends a similar warning to nearby cars and is triggered when the driver presses the hazard light in their car in the event of an accident of on-road obstacle.

Other cars will then receive this warning to inform the driers of a potential risk up ahead.

Both systems connect to Volvo's cloud network and pass data to other nearby drivers who would benefit from the information to proceed with caution.

'Sharing real-time safety data between cars can help avoid accidents,' said Malin Ekholm, Head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

'Volvo owners directly contribute to making roads safer for other drivers that enable the feature, while they also benefit from early warnings to potentially dangerous conditions ahead.'

They are currently only available in Volvo cars but the firm says it hopes its rivals and competitors will develop compatible technology which would allow for a much larger scale sharing of information.

'The more vehicles we have sharing safety data in real time, the safer our roads become. We hope to establish more collaborations with partners who share our commitment to safety,' added Ms Ekholm.

The technology will be available to any new cars built from this week and will come as standard on any vehicle made in 2020 and can be retrofitted to earlier models.
