Volvo joins European safety data-sharing project
Project aims to share traffic safety data generated by cars and infrastructure to improve road safety
Volvo Cars has joined forces with other automakers, service providers and national governments for a pan-European pilot project that aims to share traffic safety data generated by cars and infrastructure to improve road safety, the Swedish carmaker said in a press release on 3 June. Under the project, called “European Data Taskforce”, partners will share anonymized data or safety services based on that data with the pilot via a cloud-based platform. Among automakers, other members of the European Data Taskforce are BMW and Mercedes-Benz and Ford.
