Swedish brand Volvo is working on a pilot project that could significantly enhance safety when the road conditions are not ideal. The work, based on the cloud, is being developed in northern Europe and would report both to other vehicles as to the authorities of road maintenance.

Volvo has always been openly concerned about road safety. Since the inclusion in the 60 seat belt three-point fixation projects currently use to detect wildlife. Now, the Swedish brand has reported a new job with the government that seeks to improve safety when the road is snow, wet or in substandard conditions.

The work is based on a system of sharing data in the cloud. According to this, individual cars share from obtaining information at each point in the road auto both users and other agencies responsible for road maintenance way. When a car detects an ice sheet, for example, this information is immediately transmitted to other cars through Volvo database.

This project is particularly interesting for improving security in those countries and mountain roads where conditions can change by simply turning a curve.
