The Zero-Fatality Car May Soon Be A Reality
In the future, cars could be much safer to drive, thanks to new technologies embraced by auto-manufacturers.
A few years back, PSFK reported on Volvo’s ambitious plan to eliminate any injuries or deaths in their cars by the year 2020. Computerworld follows up on that report by writing about advanced safety technologies being developed by major car manufacturers that could eventually lead to zero fatalities in new cars. Car companies are using everything from computer simulations and virtual engineering to the behavioral patterns of pedestrians to design these cars that will include safety features such as road-sign recognition, blind spot warning and collision avoidance systems.
