It looks like this is part of Volvo's "2020" program, which I guess is a goal that by 2020 nobody will be seriously hurt or killed by a new Volvo; presumably because of new safety features, etc.
I know here on a forum full of guys and gals who operate their brakes independently, many still with carbs and nary a stock bike in sight; the idea of those computer aided safety/driving aids might seem like a bad idea. But, for those of us on two wheels; imagine how effective that stuff could be. Assuming those systems can identify the motorcycle, I'm all for systems that will automatically apply the brakes instead of rear-ending me, or stop drivers from pulling out when I'm coming. I dunno about y'all but I trust these modern systems, which are exceptional, far more than a lot of drivers!
