Volvo Cars is developing "connected car" technology that would allow the automaker to capture road status data that's sent by cars to a cloud server and shared with other drivers and local authorities, the automaker has announced.

The automaker is giving a presentation about Volvo Cloud at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from March 2-5.

Volvo outlined several possible uses of the technology, including cities improving traffic flow management by optimizing traffic lights and speed limits and by offering re-routing suggestions based on real-time traffic jam alerts.

Drivers could receive real-time warnings about dangerous weather and emergency road conditions or of emergency braking by other drivers. In the future, smart cities could even use connected street-lights to illuminate slippery road-sections in another color to identify dangerous road conditions.
