This is not how you should demonstrate Volvo's Pedestrian Detection System

By Faiming_low on 26 May 2015 in New technology, Safety, Videos

Attached Image No matter what car manufacturers invent in order to maximize road safety and minimize accident hazards, accidents will still happen as long as humans are in the equation.
 
Case in point. Watch the guy who is trying to demonstrate Volvo's City Safety system which would automatically jam the brakes if it detects a vehicle or a large obstacle in front at a standstill or moving slowly in the same direction. Unfortunately, the silly guy does not know that the system does not detects humans and he proceeds to test it on poor guy in pink. We hope he did not sustain any major injuries...
 
For your info, Volvo does actually have a Pedestrian Detection system which would have worked in the above demo but alas, the XC60 used in the video was not fitted with it.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Ouch!! Even the manufacturers would use mannequins to demonstrate, not real people!

 

Not the first time it's happened though:

Can never trust technology too much, still best to be operated by a human.
