Importance of electrical courses shown by car show issues

The benefits of electrical courses for the next generation of engineers came to the fore as Volvo's new Pedestrian Detection System failed during a demonstration at this year's Car Tech.

Demonstrating their latest development for Volvo vehicles, the Swedish manufacturer showcased an electrical system that means their cars will automatically brake should the driver not respond to something that could be a person in their wake.

The futuristic technology has been created allowing vehicles fitted with the device to sense obstacles on the road ahead and brake should the driver fail to do so.

However during one test demonstration, while the Volvo XC60 had impressively stopped inches away from a child-sized crash test dummy, the prototype S60 failed to brake and crashed into the back of a parked lorry.

But without engineers having undertaken electrical courses, Volvo's work to produce an automatic braking vehicle would not have advanced quite so successfully in the last ten years.

No matter how good their new Volvo's electrical and technological developments are, they won't stop some incidents like the recent accident reported by the BBC where a light aircraft crashed into a Volvo near a runway in Essex.
