Volvo aims to produce the world's first accident-proof car.2009 Volvo S60 concept

The next generation S60 will be unveiled at the Detroit motor show in January and include a system which automatically stops the car if it senses a collision is imminent, reports The Daily Telegraph.

The technology works via a radar on the front grille which detects the nearest vehicle in front of the car and measures how far away it is.

Thomas Broberg, Volvo's safety specialist said: "Our aim for 2020 is that no one should be killed or injured in a Volvo car."

The car is due to be launched in 2010.
