Volvo’s New Time Machine Concept To Drive Itself To LA Auto Show

Volvo announced that they will reveal a new ‘Time Machine’ concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
The concept will be based on the same SPA platform used by the XC90 and the upcoming S90 and V90 flagships and will be the host of Volvo’s new technologies. And no, Volvo didn’t actually invent a time traveling device. “You won’t be able to go back in time and meet the legends of history, or go into the future and meet your kids,” said Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz, Volvo’s General Manager of Monitoring and Concept Center, “but when our planned concept is applied to a SPA based vehicle, it has the potential of giving significant time back to drivers.”What that means is that the ‘Time Machine’ concept is going to display the autonomous technology that’s been currently developed but the fact that it will be using the Scalable Product Architecture also means that the technology will be soon available for production.Volvo has already announced their public pilot program that involves a fleet of 100 self-driving XC90s in Gothenburg in 2017.The ‘Time Machine’ concept will feature new hardware and software developed at the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center in California with the unveiling scheduled for November 18 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
