Tesla on Autopilot rear-ends parked police car in Connecticut

“When operating a vehicle your full attention is required at all times
to ensure safe driving,” the state police wrote Saturday in a Facebook
post. “Although a number of vehicles have some automated capabilities,
there are no vehicles currently for sale that are fully automated or
self-driving.”

A similar incident last year in which a Tesla Model S slammed into the
rear of a fire truck on a Southern California highway triggered an
investigation by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. While
neither crash resulted in injuries, both raise questions about the use
and limitations of advanced driver-assist technology that can struggle
to detect stationary objects.

Tesla is pushing the autonomous envelope, while
"Volvo invests in autonomous vehicle operating system startup Apex.AI through its VC arm"

Apex.AI currently lists two products on its home page: Apex.OS and Apex.Autonomy. The former aims to provide a set of simple-to-integrate APIs that can give automakers and others access to fully certified autonomous mobility technology, while the latter is more focused on specific elements and components for those looking to make use of specific elements of autonomous technology, including perception, localization, path planning and more.

Volvo Group Venture Capital acting CEO Anna Westerberg, who is also the automaker’s SVP of Connected Solutions, said in a press release announcing the news that Volvo Group is “excited to invest in a company that enables easier development of safety-certified systems.” In providing systems that comply with industry-standard safety requirements, Apex.AI could potentially help speed the process of getting autonomous driving systems into production vehicles, across both its commercial and consumer offerings.

In news, I see nothing about Volvo's crashing....I wonder if Volvo is testing on public roads.
