City Safety™ - laser sensor
The City Safety™ function includes a sensor which transmits laser light (see illustration for sensor location). Contact a qualified workshop in the event of a fault or if the laser sensor needs servicing - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. It is absolutely essential to follow the prescribed instructions when handling the laser sensor.
City Safety™ - limitations
The sensor in City Safety™ is designed to detect cars and other large vehicles in front of the car irrespective of whether it is day or night. However, the function does have some limitations.
City Safety™ is a function for helping the driver to avoid a collision when driving in queues, amongst other things, when changes in the traffic ahead, combined with a lapse in attention, could lead to an incident.

City Safety™ - function
