Making transport solutions intelligent

Making transport solutions intelligent

 To an increasing extent, the Volvo Group’s world-class products are being supported by soft products with the aim of offering customers more profitable solutions. As part of Volvo Group’s overall research programmes, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is an area that is both important and continuing to grow rapidly.

ITS focuses on improving safety and mobility in transportation, enhancing productivity through the use of advanced IT and communications technologies. Much of the Volvo Group’s work in the ITS area is related to cooperative systems and connected

vehicles, mainly in three areas: Active road safety, Transport security and Transport effectiveness.

All public stakeholders together with the industry, the academic community and the Volvo Group’s customers, share the common goals of developing transport systems that are more effective, safer, more secure and less environmentally harmful. For this reason the Volvo Group is performing major research as part of many projects – regional and national – to develop functioning systems that will enable us to achieve these goals together.
