I feel drained after a long day at work and now have to drive back home. A sleepy state can prove to be dangerous, especially while driving.

Driver Assistance Technologies 5. Volvo’s Pedestrian Detection with automatic brakes
A Description of Driver Assistance Technologies:
The reaction time goes for a toss while driving when someone suddenly emerges in front of the car. This can prove to be quite a disaster, throwing you behind bars and the pedestrian in a hospital. Just to avoid any such situation a “Pedestrian Detection” technology along with automatic brakes has been embedded in Volvo’s S60 sedan. It will intelligently sense anyone who gets in the way and if the driver fails to respond will apply brakes and make the vehicle freeze. But if you are driving above 22mph, the speed of the vehicle will be reduced to desirable levels avoiding any serious crashes.
