Abstract:
A highly reliable all-mechanical air bag system has been developed with a production cost lower than the electrical air bag system. All components, such as the bag, inflator and sensor are integrated into the steering wheel. Regarding the sensor design, we first discussed the requirements of the sensor to optimize the driver's protection, and then we designed it using a simulation method. We have confirmed by crash tests that this method is correct, and have found that this system is effective for reducing facial injuries.
