Volvo is reportedly working with Ericsson to watch HD streaming television in its future self-driving cars.
The announcement, made at CES 2016, forms part of Concept 26, the automaker’s vision for autonomous vehicles.
Volvo said that developing new streaming systems for self-driving cars would allow their occupants to sit back and “watch their favourite TV shows in high definition”.
Doing that presents a problem: bandwidth. Volvo said its work with Ericsson would help deliver reliable and speedy data connections outside densely populated areas, allowing everyone to sit back and stream Netflix while travelling.
