Volvo to launch 'no death' cars by 2020
Known for its safety, Volvo is all set to launch a 'crashproof' car, and the company claims that it will eradicate deaths and accidents in its vehicles by 2020.

ON AN average, around 3200 people die in road accidents every day around the world. But statistics like this may be a thing of the past soon, as Volvo, a reputed car maker, is manufacturing 'no death' cars.

The swedish automaker aims to develop these cars which would drive themselves. In the next eight years, these cars are expected to be launched across the world. The cars would be fitted with technology that makes it easy to apply the brakes to avoid accidents.

The 'no death car' would apply brakes automatically if it finds any hindrance on the road ahead, courtesy the sensor fitted in it. The car would also detect the maximum speed limit for a particular highway and inform the driver to abide by it. And speed limiter, fitted in the car wouldn't allow the driver to exceed the limit.

In many countries, one has to strictly adhere to the laws of lane driving, so if a driver drifts from his lane, the car would automatically be steered back to its designated lane.
