► Autonomous driving by Volvo
Despite massive improvements in traffic safety, 1.2 million people are still killed in traffic every year. In 2007, this spurred Volvo Cars, as the only automotive manufacturer in the world, to launch a safety vision stating that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020. The company's vision is that cars should not crash. The first autonomous features will be introduced in the all-new Volvo XC90 by the end of 2014: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with steer assist automatically follows the vehicle ahead in queues. Other features include road edge and barrier detection with steer assist, which detects if the car is about to drive off the road and autonomously applies steering torque to bring the vehicle back on track. The next step is technology that follows the car in front at higher speeds, allowing the driver to take his or her hands off the steering wheel while still surveying the drive. This in turn paves the way for the introduction of Highly Autonomous Cars that hand over responsibility to the vehicle, which handles all driving functions at the driver's discretion. This sophisticated self-driving technology will be tested and evaluated in the 'Drive Me' project in Volvo Car Group's Swedish hometown of Gothenburg. In 2017, 100 customers will join the project using 100 self-driving Volvo cars driving on selected public roads in and around the city. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://plus.google.com/+YouCarPress

MaaS - Mobility-as-a-Service
We’ve all been trying to explain to friends and other non-professionals how Mobility-as-a-Service (or MaaS) will transform our personal mobility. This little movie – recently developed by Drive Sweden - is an attempt to illustrate the benefits of shifting from personal ownership (of a car) to subscribing for on-demand mobility services.

IKEA - REGISSÖR serie
Maak kennis met de REGISSÖR serie van IKEA; een reeks duurzame opbergmeubels van populier die in een handomdraai te monteren zijn. Voor de revolutionaire serie maakt IKEA gebruik van een nieuwe, gepatenteerde montagetechniek. Dankzij het gebruik van vastgelijmde houten pluggen zijn de meubels snel te monteren door de onderdelen simpelweg in elkaar te klikken. Er komt geen schroef of inbussleutel aan te pas. Bovendien zijn de meubels dankzij het gebruik van een nieuwe board-to-frame techniek extra duurzaam en stevig. Ontdek in deze video hoe de innovatieve montagetechniek werkt. Op de hoogte blijven?

IKEA Foundation – shining a light on unseen emergencies
Every year on World Humanitarian Day, the IKEA Foundation honours the aid workers who risk their lives to protect others. This year we are highlighting Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the incredible, lifesaving medical care they deliver in some of the world’s most overlooked crises.
Creating a better future for children in the Amazon
The IKEA Foundation’s partner Forest Trends has been working with the Surui and another Amazonian tribe, the Yawanawa, to improve their family incomes and keep their cultural traditions alive. Now children can have a bright future within the tribe, and families don’t feel the need to find work elsewhere, such as on the cattle ranches. Using a unique combination of agroforestry training, women’s empowerment strategies and youth exchanges, the programme helps families develop long-term ways to protect their rainforest homelands and earn a sustainable income.
