Volvo and Autoliv kick off autonomous Zenuity project
Chinese-Swedish carmaker Volvo and Swedish-American safety equipment manufacturer Autoliv announced earlier this week that their 50-50 joint-venture Zenuity has officially started its operations. Zenuity’s objective is to develop advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) technologies.
“Volvo Cars combined its know-how with Autoliv’s to create a world leader in autonomous driving safety systems. With Zenuity starting operations we move a step closer to delivering this exciting technology,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Volvo Cars.
“In the last nine months we have worked hard to get Zenuity started and I am very pleased that we are now ready to start operations. 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,” said Dennis Nobelius, CEO of Zenuity.
