Volvo may not be the flashiest car company out there, but the company does get to pride itself in the high level of safety found in its automobiles. From the creators of the three-point seatbelt and this awesome commercial, Volvo is trying to end automobile fatalities with autonomous cars. Volvo’s Swedish “Drive Me” project will see 100 self-driving cars hit the streets of Gothenburg; testing the vehicle’s ability to drive in all possible traffic scenarios. Research and technology development will begin next year with hopes of getting these robo-chauffeurs on the road by 2017. Getting people to trust a machine not to crash while they blatantly ignore the road, like the woman pictured above, may take a little longer. News via:
