Volvo system could comic: road kill limit.

DETROIT - Volvo City safety bring a car to a complete halt to avoid an accident. A variation might be to avoid animals on the road and collisions.

It an unpleasant reality on the highway, but the folks at Volvo think they have a way, is to return to the seemingly omnipresent accident with some of the same high-tech systems, which the manufacturer to reduce the unintentional pedestrian collisions on public roads cut.

The new animal-friendly system is a way to the now Chinese-owned Volvo is hoping its traditional reputation as a leader in vehicle safety.

Volvo won Kudos already for his latest active safety technologies, such as city security attached to the windscreen of an infrared laser sensor is used to monitor traffic on a vehicle. At speeds of up to 2 19 mph typical crowded cities, and in rush hour traffic - the system will recognize a possible collision. If the driver with the time not the two cars 18 meters away from each other to respond, it will jam automatically on the brakes.

Another version of the system can detect pedestrians and to take action to avoid impact. Such collisions are a significant part of some 35,000 Americans killed in road accidents per year.

Volvo engineers began then, question me, of animals that are killed each year impact in much larger numbers than the result of the vehicle. And groups such as PETA, people for the ethical treatment of animals, are not the only ones that disrupted by the toll.

According to a study by State farm there were 1.09 million deer of motor vehicles in the United States be taken while 12 months caused these events $3.5 billion in damage until 30 June. And such collisions routinely numerous dead and wounded. Such incidents are more dangerous in a country such as Sweden, Volvo home page, if the collision includes a moose.

The manufacturer is looking to introduce a modified version of city security, that can use cameras or other systems to expand their skills, and the new approach could show up in a few years on the manufacturer-SUV models, such as the XC90 notes a Bloomberg report.

It remains to be seen how well it works. It is difficult to forecast animal behaviour, in particular, when they suddenly by hide in a stand of trees at the roadside arising. But a recent study of insurance claims by the highway loss data Institute Volvo city secure system, in particular the number of the vehicle for damages as a result of vehicle to vehicle collisions by 27%, while insurance claims relating to personal injury decreased by 51% in vehicles with reduced the technology.

"This is our first real look at an advanced crash avoidance technology, and the results are encouraging," said Adrian Lund, President of the Institute data loss highway.

Various forms of the camera, radar or laser of clashes that have made LOB systems market and such insurance industry could especially when paired with discounts - promote even more.

General Motors just announced, a new low-cost system with a single camera.

But Volvo's first manufacturer, seems especially with a view to using this technology, to be kind to animals.
