Self-driving car - level 2

Self-driving car - level 2

08-05-2014 15:00

Volvo is starting a new project. It wants to introduce us to self-driving cars. These cars allow you to sit back as they take control.

Volvo wants to make cars in which nobody gets killed or seriously injured. The plan is to produce very safe cars by 2020. Volvo’s cars can already brake automatically and help you keep in your lane.

Also, its cars are more fuel-efficient and friendlier to the planet.

And it helps if you are not very good at parking. Some cars come with automated parking!

Difficult words: brake (to make the car go more slowly), lane (area of the road), fuel-efficient (the cars don’t burn much fuel).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
