Volvo’s Occupant Sensing

Volvo radar

Volvo has revealed a new interior radar system in its EX90 electric SUV that monitors the entire vehicle to ensure young kids and pets aren’t left behind. The new system uses a series of radar sensors in the overhead console, roof-mounted reading lamps and cargo area to detect even tiny movements throughout the car. Volvo says the reminder is more effective after the driver attempts to lock the vehicle. With Volvo’s system, if the driver tries to lock the vehicle while a child or animal is detected inside, the lock function is disabled and an alert is displayed on the center console screen. In addition to activating the driver alert, the vehicle’s climate system will remain on when occupants are detected in order to reduce the risk of heatstroke or hypothermia so long as the vehicle’s battery has sufficient charge.
