The Motion Sensor Research and Development (MSPD) team from Volvo is working on a new sensor that they think could be one of the first to beat out competing motion sensors on a level playing field.
The team is building a sensor that could detect motion in a number of ways, including via ambient light, the heat of the environment, and even vibration.
The sensor also could help drivers navigate the world by analyzing the car’s behavior in real time.MSPT is a Finnish technology company that specializes in motion sensing technologies, including infrared cameras.
The company also has a long history of developing sensors that have been used for other automotive applications, including radar systems and car-to-car communications.
But Volvo has long been known as a carmaker that makes some of the most advanced vehicles on the planet.
That could change soon, as the company announced its intention to build an electric vehicle by 2021.
