Volvo and Uber to equip base-standard XC90 with self-driving capabilities

1 January 0001

Story from Autonomous Vehicle International.

Volvo Cars has combined the base model of an XC90 SUV with a self-driving system from Uber Advanced Technologies Group to create its first production-standard autonomous vehicle.

The result of a three-year collaboration in AV development, the self-driving Volvo XC90 is part of an ongoing commercial agreement with Uber for the delivery of tens of thousands of autonomous drive-ready base cars over the coming years.

The base XC90 has been equipped with key safety features that enable Uber to easily install its own self-driving system. The most important features include several back-up systems for both steering and braking functions, as well as battery back-up power. If any of the primary systems should fail, the back-up systems are designed to immediately act to bring the car to a stop.
