Video: Volvo Auto Brake System Fails, Again!

Volvo was very excited when they finally developed one of those cool auto brake systems at home. The idea is that the onboard radars and cameras detect the obstacles ahead, warn the driver, and he didn’t take action, will apply the brakes automatically. Fine, but somehow this system is not working for Volvo! A few months ago they decided to show it off to the press, but as we reported the car actually crashed into the obstacle it was supposed to avoid. They took it back to the lab, made a few changes, brought it back again, and… Yep, you guessed it. It failed again!
