AEB - 'The most significant development since the safety belt'

15 April 2018

In an article titled:  'The most significant development since the safety belt' , BBC has reported that the Volvo XC90 is, according to the independent laboratory Thatcham Research, the safest car it has ever tested.

Volvo XC90 went on sale in the UK in 2002 it has sold over 50,000 vehicles, yet not a single person has been killed while driving it, or as a passenger.

One reason for the Volvo's success is that it was an early leader in the use of Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB). The article explains AEB well.
