Lotta Jakobsson from Volvo Cars talks to CNET Australia about car safety, its future and how the company developed its drowsiness warning system.

Jakobsson has been working at Volvo for over a decade, and was one of the brains behind the company's whiplash protection system (WHIPS) and the biofidelic rear-impact dummy (BioRID).

She's also the chairperson of the ISO group working on in-vehicle child restraint systems, as well as the SAFER vehicle and traffic safety centre at the University of Chalmers in Goteburg, Sweden.

Stay tuned, as we we'll have a second interview up shortly where Jakobsson talks about her particular specialty: child safety in vehicles.
