The Volvo Brand name has been synonymous with automotive safety since its inception. In pioneered the innovations of the rear-facing child safety seat and the three-point safety belt, and with its new Volvo EX90, it looks to take its safety technologies to the next level. In addition to a wide range of safety features that keep you safe from obstacles outside the vehicle, this electrified SUV will also leverage interior sensors to protect you from unseen hazards like fatigue and driver distraction.

Now, if you're like a lot of drivers from Suwanee to Lawrenceville, chances are there are a least a few cases where you can look back and recognize that you were driving in an unsafe state. Whether it's driving through drowsiness late in the evening or glancing at your phone a bit too often on the highway, there's a bevy of distractions and hazards that might not be readily apparent when you're on the road..

Luckily, that's where the new safety features of the Volvo EX90 come into play. In addition to using LiDAR sensors to assess hazards in a 360-degree perimeter around the vehicle, the Volvo EX90 also uses interiors sensors and cameras to monitor driver fatigue and attentiveness while you're driving. If the sensors notice the driver's eyes losing focus, it can engage a gentle nudge and auditory reminder to pull off the road and rest a bit. Plus, in emergency cases where the driver does not respond and falls asleep at the wheel, the Volvo EX90 will safely decelerate to a full stop and alert emergency services.

The Volvo EX90 will debut this spring, so if you're interested in learning more about its smart safety technologies, have a chat with the team at our Volvo dealership near Gainesville and Cumming, GA today.
