Volvo Car Group has turned to Swedish-based supplier Autoliv to help speed up its autonomous vehicle program.
The as yet-unnamed venture, which will be based near Volvo’s headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, will focus on an array of new driver assistance and fully self-driving vehicle technologies. The move follows a series of similar steps by automotive rivals hoping to rev up their own autonomous vehicle projects.
“By combining our know-how and resources we will create a world leader in AD software development. This means we can introduce this exciting technology to our customers faster,” said Volvo Cars Chief Executive Hakan Samuelsson.
