We don’t usually share a lot of truck news, but this one definitely caught our attention. It isn’t a secret that Volvo are pioneers of safety, not only with their passenger cars, but their commercial vehicles as well apparently – although they’re two different entities now.

In order to help prevent severe rear-end accidents, mostly caused by inattention, Volvo have developed an advanced emergency braking system equipped with early collision warning for their FH Series trucks.

The new system combines a radar and a camera that work together to identify both stationary and moving vehicles in front. It can prevent a collision with a moving target at relative speeds of up to 70 km/h.
