Volvo cars in Europe will be able to warn each other about hazardous road conditions

Volvo cars in Europe will be able to warn each other about hazardous road conditions:

Volvo, which first introduced its Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert system in 2016 in Sweden and Norway, will make the system available across Europe.

The system will be a standard feature on all 2020 model-year vehicles in Europe and can be retrofitted on select earlier models as well.

The V2V that enables the Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert system uses a cloud-based network to communicate between vehicles, so that when an equipped Volvo vehicle switches on the hazard light, a signal is sent to all nearby Volvo cars connected to the cloud service.

The slippery road alert works by anonymously collecting road surface information from cars farther ahead on the road and warning drivers approaching a slippery road section in advance.
