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
City Safety detects the traffic in front of the car with a laser sensor fitted in the top edge of the windscreen. If there is an imminent risk of collision, City Safety will automatically brake the car, which may be experienced as heavy braking.
