Volvo’s New Autonomous Big Rig Braking Technology Allows 40-Ton Semi Trucks to Stop Instantly

Volvo is pushing the envelope when it comes to autonomous braking technology, with its latest innovation being a collision warning/early braking system.

The new technology from Volvo Trucks Global was designed with safety in mind, allowing a big-rig loaded down with cargo to stop on a dime should a Volvo semi-truck need to avoid a crash or say the driver were to fall asleep at the wheel.
