It’s starting to appear in a lot of the new cars on the market, somewhat AI like awareness by the addition of an emergency braking system. The idea is simple, the car knows how fast it’s going, and with the help of radar, how close the object is in front of them. In the event the driver loses focus or is distracted for a moment this dead man’s switch style system kicks into gear. First it usually alerts the driver with a loud noise and then applies the brakes in an effort to either avoid hitting the object ahead or reduce the speed at which you do hit it. Its overall focus is to minimise any chance of serious injuries.

And no where is this system more impressive than on Volvo’s new range of trucks. As you can image, stopping a truck is no simple task, they are big and very heavy. Once you check out the following demo video you will see how impressive this system really is.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone.
