Volvo Is Designing A Self-Driving Car That Could Eliminate All Traffic Deaths

 Friday, November 20, 2015


As usual, traffic was apocalyptic on the 10 Freeway. So I cued up the Master of None episode I didn’t finish the night before, pulled out the Greek yogurt I hadn’t had time to eat for breakfast, reclined my seat way back, and relaxed. I may have even dozed off as my vehicle steered its way towards Santa Monica. While this is the fantasy of every present-day Los Angeles driver, it’s also the proposed reality of Volvo’s new Concept 26, an “interior design concept and innovation platform” for autonomous vehicles that you can go see at the LA Auto Show this week.
