Autoliv is working with Volvo to develop the autonomous system -

Drive Me is a joint car research program between Volvo Car Group, the Swedish Transport Administration, the Agency Swedish transports, Lindholmen Science Park and the city of Gotheburg. The program was created in 2013 and consists of a fleet of 100 autonomous cars that will be released for the first time in the world in the Swedish city of Gothenburg. These self driving cars are targeted on families and commuters for their use of public transport daily. Their target date is considered in 2017.

Autoliv, a giant of automotive safety, recently reported to have joined the program. Hopefully, this movement, it will speed up the process of securing basic active safety systems for autonomous driving in production. Some examples for active safety systems contributed by Autoliv's Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist.

With all these security measures in place, hopefully traffic accidents, injuries and fatalities will be reduced significantly as according to independent statistics, about 0 percent of the accidents occurred are caused by human error due to the reason that they are not fully concentrate on the road and often distracted by other things.
