Volvo Cars will soon become the first automaker to install laser-based sensors across its entire fleet.
The LiDAR sensor to be included with the upcoming electric version of its XC90 sport utility vehicle, dubbed the EX90, could reduce collisions by 9% and accidents with injuries or fatalities by 20%, according to Volvo CEO Jim Rowan.
Rowan said the sensor from Luminar can see "a black tire on a black road at 120 meters ahead, or a pedestrian at 250 meters."
He added that Volvo plans to include similar LiDAR sensors in all future models.
Mercedes-Benz and BMW are among other automakers with plans to roll out LiDAR sensors in their vehicles.
