Volvo has prepared a mysterious novelty for Los AngelesNovember 20, 2018
Volvo has distributed a teaser for a mysterious novelty, which it intends to present at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Judging by the photos and hashtags in the description, we can assume that the Swedes will show some kind of technology or service related to autonomous control. Perhaps the future Volvo can be controlled from a smartphone or, using a special application, call a drone taxi.
A photo posted on Facebook shows a smartphone that says “This is not a phone”. Apparently, what Volvo shows will turn it into something more. For example, a smartphone will become the key on which all information about the driver will be stored: his musical preferences, settings for the seats, steering wheel and mirrors, the air conditioner and information about the places where it most often happens.
In addition, using a smartphone, you can drive a car. For example, it is already implemented in electric cars Tesla, BMW 5-Series or Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain. It is possible that the smartphone in the presentation of Volvo can also give access to the fleet of UAVs. Such as the stand-alone concept car 360c, which debuted in September.
Volvo 360c – all-electric drone, devoid of steering and pedals. The company is positioning it as an alternative to domestic flights, when it comes to distances of no more than 300 kilometers. Depending on the tasks, 360c can be transformed into a mobile office, an entertainment room or a bedroom.
