Volvo says this will allow it to validate its autonomous systems faster, which will allow it to safely accelerate its adoption. Real-world data will allow him to perfect systems for specific locations faster than using test cars on a special track.
Volvo will also use the live update to add information systems and functionality to its cars, which will include upgrades to safety systems. The first car to use this technology will be a new SUV, the next-generation XC90, which will be built on an exclusively electric “technology base”.
Asked about the added cost of installing stock LiDar systems on all cars, Samuelsson admitted it was high, but said, “You have to do with the value, and the value is to really build the car from. security possible using all available technologies. A car with LiDar will be safer than a car with just cameras, and Volvo really has to use all the technologies available. We can’t afford not to have LiDar on a Volvo when the technology is ready.
This machine will feature a series of new safety systems and sensors, including a new LiDar system developed by Laminar and a bespoke autonomous driving computer developed by Nvidia. Volvo claims that a combination of these advanced hardware and software systems will result in a significant increase in its overall safety, thereby reducing accidents and fatalities.
Volvo is working with its autonomous driving software arm, Zenseact, to develop a data factory that can store more than 200 PebiBytes (225 million gigabytes) of data.
