Volvo has made a bold move and entered the autonomous driving market through a company acquisition. The Swedish automaker announced it was buying ZipDrive, a small start-up that creates self-driving vehicles for cities, in an effort to expand its driverless technology. This move is part of Volvo’s larger plan to bring autonomous driving capabilities to its lineup of cars. Volvo hopes to use ZipDrive’s technology to create vehicles that can travel safely on city streets while avoiding pedestrians and other obstacles. In this article, we will discuss the implications of Volvo’s acquisition and what this means for the future of autonomous driving.

The future of autonomous driving

The future of autonomous driving is looking very promising. In the near future, we will see more and more companies offering autonomous driving features in their vehicles. Volvo is one of the first companies to enter the market with their recent acquisition of a company that specializes in autonomous driving technology. This is a very exciting development for the automotive industry and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for autonomous driving!

Volvo’s current models with autonomous features

Volvo’s current models with autonomous features include the S60, V60, XC60, and S90. All four models are equipped with Volvo’s Pilot Assist system, which offers semi-autonomous driving at speeds of up to 80 km/h.

Pilot Assist is a hands-on system that helps drivers with steering, acceleration, and braking on well-marked roads. It is active from standstill to 80 km/h and can be used in stop-and-go traffic as well as on highways.

To use Pilot Assist, the driver needs to have their hands on the steering wheel at all times. The system will give an audible warning if it detects that the driver’s hands are not on the wheel. If the driver does not respond to the warning, the system will automatically brake the car to a stop.

Volvo’s other autonomous driving features include Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist and Distance Alert, Lane Keeping Aid with Departure Warning, and Park Assist Pilot. These features are available on select models and trim levels.

The company Volvo acquired to enter autonomous driving market

Volvo has announced that it has acquired a driverless car technology company, in a move that signals the Swedish automaker’s entry into the autonomous driving market.

The company in question is Silicon Valley start-up Zenuity, which was founded in 2017 and is a joint venture between Volvo and Autoliv, a supplier of automotive safety systems.

Zenuity specializes in developing software for self-driving cars, and its acquisition by Volvo will give the automaker access to this cutting-edge technology.

It is believed that Volvo plans to use Zenuity’s software to develop its own line of autonomous vehicles, which could be on the road as early as 2021.

This move by Volvo comes as other major automakers are also investing heavily in self-driving car technology. BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi have all made announcements in recent months about their plans to enter the autonomous driving market.
