Volvo is offering a hi-tech solution to help avoid the risk of accidents caused by blind spots with its new safety system BLIS (Blind spot information system). It uses an intelligent digital camera system incorporated in both door mirrors; it monitors the area alongside the car for cars or motorbikes, then alerts the driver via an orange light situated in the pillar by the door mirror. BLIS also works after dark, when it will react to headlamps. BLIS is available as an option on the XC90 and is expected to be introduced to the rest of the Volvo range next year.
