Volvo and Autoliv go live with autonomous driving JV
Volvo and Autoliv’s autonomous driving JV has started operations.
Announced at the start of the year, the business marks the first time a premium car maker has joined forces with a tier-one supplier to develop advanced driver-assist systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) technologies. The first ADAS products are expected to be available for sale by 2019, with AD technologies following shortly thereafter.
Owned 50/50 by the two firms, the joint venture is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, and with additional operations in Munich, Germany, and Detroit, USA.
Dennis Nobelius, CEO of Zenuity, said: “The initial interest from automakers in Zenuity is very encouraging and we look forward to being a leader in the development of the next generation of safer and more automated cars.”
