New Volvos gossip when other drivers break the law

Volvo has applied for a patent for a solution that enables new cars to gossip about other drivers with camera surveillance. Also backwards.

With a rear-facing camera, new Volvos will monitor the traffic behind them themselves. In this way, drivers in a new Volvo will automatically be notified if/when the driver behind uses, for example, a hand-held mobile phone.

Something that is illegal in a large number of countries worldwide. Among other things. here at home, where that kind of mobile talk costs 1,500 kroner at the booth and a cut in the choir card. That is, in addition to a contribution to the Victim Fund of DKK 500.

But in fact, Volvo has patented several technological solutions. So in the name of safety, says the Chinese brand. Another system must, among other things, detect cyclists at a traffic light and predict the two-wheeler's next move.

If a cyclist crosses the road in front of a new Volvo, the car will automatically brake to avoid an accident.

Back to the mobile phone. Already today, the problematic Volvo EX30 has a camera system that keeps track of where the driver is looking. But the system cannot detect whether the eyes are directed at a mobile phone.

Nor will Volvo's new system be able to do that. It is therefore 'only' aimed at the other motorists. The idea is that a new Volvo will not only be able to warn its owner of danger but also the other motorists on the road.

"A distracted driver affects not only the driver himself, but also other road users," writes Volvo in the patent application.

To be on the right side of the law, Volvo says that no data from the new camera will be saved. Instead, it must behave as we already know the technology in a reversing camera.

– I wouldn't say that we film, it's not a recording that we save. We do it in real time, says Oswaldo Perez Barrera, who is a development engineer at Volvo Cars, in an interview with Vi Bilägare .

Volvo also does not believe that their new system will be able to reveal the identity of drivers from behind. But a Swedish professor is already warning precisely against Volvo's technology. Read more about it here .
