-- A law firm devoted to helping individuals stay safe on the road and protecting the legal rights of accident victims for the last 30 years, Montlick & Associates reviews
the latest advances in automobile safety. In this day and age, auto manufacturers are locked in a race to see which company can innovate the most effective safety technologies--and according to a recent Complex article
, the end goal is to develop a car that essentially drives itself. The Complex article contends that new safety features, developed by Volvo, have brought the automotive industry closer than ever to realizing that dream of a self-driving car. Montlick & Associates reviews the latest Volvo safety features in a new statement to the press.
The Complex article begins by noting just how forward thinking the new Volvo safety features are. "Volvo just announced three new safety features, and they push the driven car yet closer to the inevitable autonomous car," the article states. "While we freely admit that autonomous cars sometimes creep us out a bit, the promise of being able to sit back and chill in traffic is wonderful, and these new Volvo features all sound great too."
Specifically, Volvo has announced new pedestrian and animal detection features, which are said to work well in the dark and to improve upon similar technologies that currently exist--though exactly how this new technology is an improvement, Volvo has not specified. Additionally, Volvo has unveiled technology that enables cars to detect the physical edges of roads, rather than just the lines--and to apply steering torque that can bring cars back into line, in the center of the lane. This is groundbreaking, with no other vehicle maker matching this capability.
Third and finally, Volvo has announced that its Adaptive Cruise Control will now offer a "steering assistant," which means that motorists on the highway can set the cruise control and that the car itself will keep speed, maintain a safe distance behind other cars, and remain in the middle of the lane. "Road tripping will require basically no effort," the Complex article notes.
David R. Montlick, the founder of Montlick & Associates, reviews these breakthroughs in the firm's new statement to the press. "At Montlick & Associates, we are excited to see more and more auto designers applying their innovative spirits to keeping drivers, passengers, and pedestrians safer, and we are glad to see new technologies emerge that could reduce traffic accidents," Montlick states. "With that said, we also hope that these new technologies do not cause drivers to go into 'autopilot,' or to lose their diligence in staying safe and practicing good judgment on the road."
