Abstract:
Paper introduces cost effective design alternatives for “out of position” occupant safety, including: Extractable passenger side lids which move out of the way before airbag deploys. Multi-stage tether controlled airbag deployment dynamically senses “out of position” resistance and controls deployment of further stages. Airbag back pressure activated steering column forward and down movement. Two stage thorax bag with tether control to prevent catapulting “out of position” occupants. Two stage headrest that expands forward and sideways to protect occupant heads in rear end crashes. Second stage activates only if no “out of position” is detected.
