    dead at youtube comment: Tecnología en manos de monos... Pan y circo.

    and an explanation of what happened:
    The thing is both the people testing the car, and the person posting this video have stupidity levels beyond the charts. 1) They were testing pedestrian detection automated braking (City Safety).... Not automatic parking... hence driving at people and not being near a parking spot 2) That car did not have technology package in it which enables pedestrian detection, you can see its missing the radar which should be visible in the grill of the car but its not there, so no there is no pedestrian detention. Only vehicle detection comes standard in Volvos, you need a technology package to enable the pedestrian detection which was missing from that particular vehicle.
    As for the source relating to "forgot to turn City Safety on". That is highly unlikely considering City Safety is ALWAYS turned on automatically. If you purposely disable it, it will automatically turn back up when you restart the car... The problem they experienced was not a problem at all, simply the car did not have pedestrian detection equipped lol!
    As for the testing the "Self-Parking". Self-Parking is only available on a S60/V60 and the new 2016 XC90 Models. The model we are looking at is the XC60 which does not have self-parking...

    Judging by the Tropigas and Sunix sign this is at the showroom of Volvo on 27 de Febrero (just next to the gas station that used to be shell and now is Sunix).

    dumb and dumber.
    funny to watch, tho, lol.
    self parking with person detection??
    in the DR the Nutheads would use such technology to let their car self park on the school yard in the middle of all the Kiddies.
    no thanks, leave 'em with the old computerless Civics and Accords and Camry's, they are sufficient of difficult computer technology to handle down here.
