Awfully calm for someone about to lose his fully functional knee caps.

They later determined that the car only had the auto-parking system installed.
The 'Pedestrian Avoidance' package (an extra $$$$ option) was not installed.

#2. This may not be accurate. See comments on slashdot and then this post.

Here's the problem: There was no system error. If there was any error, it was with the humans operating the vehicle. According to Volvo representative Johan Larsson, the video is mislabeled. Now, no one has talked to the people in the video, but Larsson says the demonstration is most likely of Volvo's pedestrian-detection and self-braking systems, not of any self-parking feature. And as Larsson also points out, this car does not appear to be one that has the pedestrian-detection feature, which is an option. If that's true—that they tried to test out the pedestrian-detection feature on a car that doesn't have it installed—then this is really just a case of dumb humans.
