Volvo Cars is showcasing the latest applications of its world-renowned safety technology in an exhibition at SMMT’s Westminster headquarters.

Displayed in UK’s Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showroom are the Volvo XC60 and V60, which both benefit from the Swedish manufacturer’s latest safety technology, including City Safety, Adaptive Cruise Control and Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection.

In 2014, with the launch of the new XC90, Volvo will introduce a raft of new vehicle safety technology, such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Steer Assist. It will also unveil its Road Edge and Barrier Detection system with Steer Assist as well as Pedestrian Detection in Darkness. In the coming years this will be followed with Autonomous Parking, allowing the vehicle to park itself with no need for driver input, and an Animal Detection system.

During its stay at SMMT, Volvo will also showcase a number of its latest innovations to a select group of influential individuals, including its ground-breaking Autonomous Drive technology, which allows the car to be driven with little or no input from the driver.
