Volvo uses connectivity to add hazard warnings

Volvo cars in America are adding hazard light and slippery road alerts to vehicles in America, in order to warn other Volvo drivers of danger in real time.

It’s partnered with Waycare Technologies to share anonymised information with traffic authorities and other drivers through Waze.

Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert will allow certain Volvo cars to communicate with each other and automatically alert other Volvo drivers via a cloud-based network when the vehicle’s hazard lights are turned on or low friction is detected, and the system is properly connected to the internet.

It was first introduced in 2016 on 90 Series cars in Sweden and Norway.
