World-leading, robust solutions for Autonomous Driving: first operating days for Zenuity

Combining Volvo Cars’ know-how with Autoliv to create a world leader in autonomous driving safety systems. Zenuity – the new joint-venture that will develop leading advanced driver assist systems – has officially started global operations in three cities.

Headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden and with additional operations in Munich, Germany, and Detroit, USA, an initial workforce of nearly 300 people from Volvo Cars and Autoliv is already moving a step closer to delivering the exciting technology that will define the mobility of tomorrow.

Over time, the joint venture’s workforce is expected to grow to over 600 employees.

Human-centric touch

Volvo Cars revealed earlier this year its distinctive approach to developing autonomous cars by focusing on people and making their lives easier – rather than following a purely technical approach to the research and development process. By creating the joint-venture with Autoliv, the premium automaker ensures world leading competence in a key technology area.

“Zenuity will enable us to deliver world leading, robust solutions for autonomous driving. The combined experience of Autoliv, the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, and Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, will ensure solutions that meet the needs of car occupants in real life road conditions”, said Jan Carlson, Chairman, President & CEO of Autoliv.

“In the last nine months we have worked hard to get Zenuity started and I am very pleased that we are now ready to start operations. The initial interest from automakers in Zenuity is very encouraging and we look forward to being a leader in the development of the next generation of safer and more automated cars,” said Dennis Nobelius, CEO of Zenuity.
