Volvo has revealed its latest in transportation safety: a car that automatically stops for bicycles, BBC reported [2].

The car uses a radar scanner, a camera and a catalog of stored images to decide whether the car should slow down for potential dangers.

Volvo already offers this system to prevent collisions with pedestrians and is working on one to detect animals.
