GOTHENBURG - November 7, 2007: A new research model, developed by Volvo Cars, uses real accident reports to predict the chain of events that occur before and during a collision. After investigating more than 36,000 accidents over a 35-year span, the Volvo Cars accident research team can predict the consequences of the collision, as well as what initially led to the accident. Studying this chain of events helps Volvo Cars develop effective car safety systems to reduce accidents and the risk of serious injuries.
