The Swedish car manufacturer, Volvo, is all set to unveil an accident-proof car. The introduction of this new technology would be first discovered in Volvo S60 with automatic brakes, which is to make its debut in the Detroit Motor Show next month.

This crash-proof car will be introduced with an advanced cruise control system and a radar fitted in the car's grille. The radar will detect the position of the vehicles ahead of the corresponding car and the current speed of the car. Based on the detected informations, the system would sense that a collision is about to happen and automatically apply the brake.

When the car senses a collision, a light flashes on the windscreen display along with an audible warning.

Thomas Broberg, Volvo's safety specialist said, “This technology helps us take an important step towards our vision of designing cars that should not crash.” He also added, “Our aim for 2020 is that no one should be killed or injured in a Volvo car.”
