First Smart Semi-Trucks with 360° eyes and no blind spots are produced by Volvo
Traffic can be a hassle, especially for a truck driver. You have to worry about oncoming vehicles, cars creeping up beside you, pedestrians walking in front of you and people in your blind spot or cutting you off. It requires a lot of attention and is very taxing. Volvo aims to make things a little easier.
Volvo Trucks has developed a new technology that could revolutionize the motor vehicle industry. Its purpose is to help protect the driver, pedestrians, other vehicles and cyclists.
The tech eliminates blind spots by allowing vehicles to to perform a 360 degree scan of the surrounding area. From the scan, it can decipher everything that is happening around it and even avoid accidents based on foresight.
The technology won’t be ready for the market until 5-10 years. In addition to eliminating blind spots around your truck, the system can also predict the movement of other vehicles and pedestrians on the road based on their current speed and trajectory.
