Volvo's Concept Car
沃尔沃的新概念

Hattori
Of course, not all traffic jams are caused by too many cars. Bonehead drivers I mean, accidents are another culprit. Well, in its efforts to reduce the accident rate, Volvo has unveiled a $10 million safety concept car. And someday, features from this vehicle may go into cars that we can afford. Ann Kellan takes it for a spin.
哈托利
当然,并非所有堵车都是因为车辆太多造成的。司机反应迟钝--我的意思是交通事故是堵车的另外一个原因。为了减少交通事故的发生,沃尔沃汽车公司展示了一辆耗资1000万美元的新概念安全轿车。终有一天,这辆沃尔沃的种种性能也能走进平常百姓家。安·凯兰对此进行报道。

Ann Kellan, CNN Correspondent
Most, if not all, car manufacturers create concept cars you won't find in a showroom but are used to help develop technologies for future cars. This one focuses on safety. Ten million dollars of research and technology went into the Volvo safety concept car. This baby is loaded with features. From a see-through pillar that reduces a driver's blind spots to sensors and computers that adjust the seats based on the location of the driver's eyes, the goal, to reduce accidents and improve comfort and security on the road. So when I get in, there is an eye sensor that recognizes me?
安·凯兰,CNN特派
记者绝大多数(即使不是全部)的汽车厂商都在生产那种你在汽车经销商处找不到的新概念车,它们能有助于发展未来普通汽车的技术。这辆新型沃尔沃汽车着重强调安全性。这辆沃尔沃牌新概念安全轿车凝聚着价值1000万美元的科研技术。这个尤物有诸多特性。从可降低司机盲区的半透明车框架,到根据司机眼睛的位置调节座椅高度的感应器和电脑,它的设计目标是:减少事故发生,提高驾驶安全度和舒适度。当我上车时,眼部感应器能认出我,对吗?

Steve Rohanna, Ford Motor Company
That's right. It will recognize your face and your eyes.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳,福特汽车公司
对它会辨认出你的面孔和眼睛。

Kellan
And adjust the seat?
凯兰
还会调整座椅吗?

Steve Rohanna
And adjust the seat and pedals, and the steering wheel and console. The seat doesn't go forward and left.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳还
会调整座椅、踏板和方向盘以及控制台。座椅不能往前和往左调整。

Kellan
It doesn't go back.
凯兰
座椅也无法向后调整。

Steve Rohanna
We move the pedals instead.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
相反,我们可以移动踏板。

Kellan
Ford, by the way, owns Volvo.
凯兰
顺便说一句,福特汽车公司是沃尔沃的母公司。

Steve Rohanna
A big problem today is parents don't take their booster seat from car to car so this has it built right in.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
目前的一个大难题是父母们无法把供婴儿使用的液压座椅从一辆车搬到另外一辆车,因此这辆沃尔沃把液压椅内置于汽车座椅中。

Kellan
And the entire seat rises to give kids a better view of the road ahead. Let's take it for a test drive.
凯兰
整个座椅可以升高,使孩童有更好的视野。让我们试试车吧。

Steve Rohanna
We can tell when there's a car coming up on you, when you're changing lanes.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
我们能够告诉你何时有汽车向你驶来,你何时并线。

Kellan
OK, here he comes.
凯兰
哦,那辆车过来了。

Steve Rohanna
You use that one. You see, flashing. No you shouldn't go over. You see the red line flashing on the windscreen.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
你用那个瞧,红灯闪了不,你不能变线你看,挡风玻璃上有一道红光闪烁。

Kellan
What is it telling you?
凯兰
红光闪烁是什么意思?

Steve Rohanna
You are closing to the car too quickly. We are over that line here. We should hear other warning signals. Yes, that was the one that picks up...
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
你快要追尾了哦,车子压线了我们应该会听到别的警报声。瞧,警报响了......

Kellan
Over the line. And if you got a flat tire, you can't feel it?
凯兰
车子压线了。如果车胎没气了,你能感觉到吗?

Steve Rohanna
No. We got a warning. The tire pressure is coming down on any of the tires.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
不能,但我们有警报。任何车胎跑气,车胎压力都会下降。

Kellan
You can drive on for a couple of miles?
凯兰
你还能继续开上几公里吗?

Steve Rohanna
Yes, you come to a safe place and change tire. The lights change depending on whether you're on a highway or in the city. They also...
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
你开到安全地带,然后换胎。警报灯光依据你是在城镇间的公路上还是在城市里行驶而变化。它们也许.....

Kellan
So they actually move when the steering wheel moves, right?
凯兰
所以只要方向盘一动,灯光也跟着转,对吗?

Steve Rohanna
They move when you're turning, right, to illuminate where you're going rather than the road in front.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
你转弯的时候,前灯也跟着转向,照亮的地方不是正前方的路,而是车辆向前行驶的地方。

Kellan
Is that Microsoft sound again?
凯兰
那不是"微软"特有的声音吗?

Steve Rohanna
And there are six computers on board. That red one is heat-sensitive sensor.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
车上装有6台电脑。这个红色的是热感应器。

Kellan
To what? To tell somebody in the car?
凯兰
能分辨车中有人?

Steve Rohanna
Exactly.
史蒂夫·罗哈纳
没错。

Kellan
So you don't leave anybody in the car. Could all these safety features create unsafe distractions?
凯兰
因此不会把任何人丢在车上。这些安全性能会不会使人掉以轻心?

DANIEL JOHNSTON, VOLVO
We want to be able to put people in the car and see what kind of situations they're in where they can become distracted by too much technology and then we start looking at that. Is there a benefit to that or is it a distraction and then take it out.
丹尼尔·约翰斯通,沃尔沃汽车公司
我们希望把人放在车里,观察因过多的科技因素导致心理松懈后会发生什么情况,然后再仔细研究,弄清楚哪些是有益的,哪些会使人松懈,然后把这部分去掉。

Kellan
Now don't expect to see a car like this on the road anytime soon, this is a prototype, but a lot of the safety features in this car will be on the road over the next five years.
凯兰
不要指望这种轿车能很快在大街上随处可见,因为它只是一辆样品车,但是这种汽车具备的许多安全性能有望在5年内"上路"。
