Welcome to Tech Moment 2021
Our chief executive Håkan Samuelsson kicks off Tech Moment 2021 with an overview of the Volvo Cars technology journey and how innovation and sustainability will deliver a leading position in the fast-growing premium electric segment.
We’ve been a leader in safety for decades – now we take the next step. The development of autonomous driving technologies (AD) means significant improvements in safety, continuously until cars become fully autonomous. So what’s our plan for AD and how will we offer our customers technology that helps save lives and avoids collisions completely?
Presenters: Mats Moberg, head of R&D Ödgärd Andersson, Zenseact chief executive
The future of our industry lies in software-defined cars – software features will differentiate one car from another. So how will we centralise computing for fast and flexible development and make sure our customers’ cars evolve to be better every day?
Presenter: Patrik Bengtsson, head of software and electronics platform
Batteries and propulsion
We’re aiming to be fully electric by 2030. So what’s our strategy to improve battery technology, secure supply and deliver to our customers the range, efficiency and charging time they expect?
Presenters: Lutz Stiegler, leader in vehicle propulsion Erik Severinson, leader in industrial strategy
Future connected experience
We were the first carmaker to introduce Google’s Android Automotive OS with Google Services – sparking potential for our customers to enjoy the best maps and virtual assistant, plus an ever-growing library of apps and services to choose from. How will we continue building the best user experience and new features for our customers?
Presenters: Sanela Ibrovic, leader in connected experience Anne-Mette Nygaard, leader in commercial digital
Future of design
Imagine it – every new Volvo car in 2030 being fully electric. We have so many opportunities to approach our designs in new ways as we explore the potential of emerging priorities like aerodynamics and material choices. So what is the future of design for Volvo?
