Autoliv: Autoliv Research to Launch Learning Intelligent Vehicle

(Stockholm, Sweden, December 20, 2016) - - - Autoliv, Inc. (NYSE: ALV
and SSE: ALIVsdb), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems,
is to launch a learning, intelligent vehicle system. The system is
developed by Autoliv Research to facilitate collaboration and shared
control between driver and vehicle. This in order to attain trust and
facilitate required safety in autonomous driving. The LIV-system is
to be demonstrated at CES in Las Vegas on January 4.

[image]The first version of LIV, the Learning Intelligent Vehicle,
utilizes Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology, and coming versions
will incorporate on-line and off-line machine learning, utilizing a
wide array of data sources and developing an individual relationship
to the driver. LIV, pronounced {'li:v} or "leave", literally means
"life" in Swedish and is a common Swedish first name as well as part
of Autoliv's own life-assuring brand name.

"With this research platform, Autoliv Research aims to solve what
truly proactive safety is all about. With LIV, we have found a way to
combine our history of saving lives and our leading technology within
active safety to accelerate the safe development of automated
vehicles," says Ola Boström, Vice President Research at Autoliv.

LIV 1.0
The first version of LIV is equipped with Autoliv technology readily
available today, connecting all the different technologies via an
AI-based ECU, which communicates and acts on all available data. Data
sources include what is derived from the driver, the car, its
surroundings, as well as from other vehicles and external data
sources.

In both autonomous driving situations as well as with the driver in
control, LIV complements the driver, monitoring and analyzing all
aspects surrounding the vehicle and safeguarding the situations in
close cooperation with the driver.

LIV also provides assistance based on the traffic around the car as
well as the preferences of the driver, keeping the driver in the loop
by allowing for two-way communication as well as interpreting the
driver's behavior. In forthcoming versions, LIV will also incorporate
machine learning technology, providing the necessities to learn the
unique characteristics in the relation between the individual driver
and vehicle.

The main reason for promoting the LIV research platform, incorporating
and testing new and existing technologies on a continuous basis, is
to develop the necessary conditions to be able to unleash autonomous
driving and AI technology on a broad scale - while maintaining safety
and providing a better driving experience. The accelerated innovation
and technology development within autonomous driving and automated
transport solutions in turn requires for more of a so called human
centric approach - where shared control and two-way trust between
human and smart vehicle is crucial for a safe autonomous development.

Ola Boström, Vice President Research at Autoliv and in charge of the
LIV project, explains further: "The more advanced machine learning
and AI technology becomes, the more important it is to have a human
centric approach - understanding how we humans and smart machines
collaborate as a joint cognitive system. As vehicles become safer, in
a sense we become worse drivers. We no longer need to control the
vehicle unless it needs or wants us to. With LIV, we have turned this
table around, with a system that trusts you to drive and works
together with you, and not the other way around."
