Volvo truck technology was released for the first time last year. This video shows a Volvo Truck fully loaded with 40 tonnes. The truck is attempting to move toward an immobile vehicle.  

The truck is not able to stop in front of the other vehicle, so there is still space between them. Another scenario uses a slow-moving vehicle. The truck can stop completely without causing any damage to the car.

This technology is a combination collision warning and emergency brake system. This technology is used to stop trucks from rear-ending stationery or slowing vehicles. It uses radar to locate vehicles ahead. 

The truck also has a forward-facing camera. The system will flash a blinking red light on the windshield when it detects a slow or stationary vehicle. The system will make a beeping noise if the driver doesn't respond. 

If the driver doesn't respond to the alerts, the system will apply the brake gently. The system will use emergency brakes to bring the truck to a complete halt. This system works in trucks traveling at approximately 43 miles an hour. 

It will also alert vehicles in its path. The truck's brake lights will flash rapidly, signaling that it is applying an emergency brake.
