It is noted that Volvo cars will be equipped with a system of cameras and sensors that will monitor the driver. If he’ll take your eyes off the road, close their eyes or begin to move in a zigzag pattern along the strip, the machine activates the security system and will sound to alert you.

If the person is driving does not respond to the warning, the car will slow down independently and automatically call emergency services via the Volvo on Call system.

The lack of response to the questions of the operator or an inadequate reaction of the driver they will become a signal for the absolute stop of the machine. If necessary, there will be caused by police or ambulance.
