Volvo's self-driving cars rely on 28 cameras, sensors and lasers as well as software rules to drive itself on busy roads.
Like other autonomous systems, the system needs a user to select a chosen route so it can use a cloud-based digital map to guide the car's driving, giving it an awareness of known obstacles and features on the road.
Sensors: Volvo's Drive Me car is fitted with multiple radars, cameras and laser sensors to plot its exact positioning on the road and give the system a 360° view of the car's surroundings.

A network of computers processes the information, which together with GPS, generates a real-time map of moving and stationary objects in the environment.
Twelve ultrasonic sensors around the car are used to identify objects close to the vehicle and support autonomous drive at low speeds.
Radars: A wave radar and camera placed on the windscreen reads traffic signs and the road's
