Volvo develops system that detects cyclists

Volvo announced the first detection system for cyclists. This feature takes advantage of new technology City Safety, and further includes an automatic braking to avoid any collision with a rider.

"It is able to detect cyclists and apply the brakes if sensing the event of an accident caused by the driver lack of action," explains Doug Speck, Volvo's vice president.

If a cyclist is identified on a collision course, the system gives a warning for the driver and if it does not react, the car brakes automatically to avoid a possible hit and run.

Volvo wants to introduce this system on all models equipped with City Safety, from May.
