In Hyundai have come up with airbags for multiple accidentsJanuary 22, 2019
Hyundai Motor Group introduced the world’s first airbag system, which will provide additional protection for people inside the car, even in repeated accidents.
According to the National Road Safety System (USA), 30% of the 56,000 road accidents that occurred from 2000 to 2012 in the North American region were associated with a re-accident that occurred immediately after the first one. In this regard, Hyundai Motor Group announced the development and future use of the world’s first airbag system designed for multiple collisions. Over time, all the new models of Hyundai and Kia will receive this progressive system, thenewsmarket.com reports.
Multi-collision accidents are those in which a primary accident results in collisions with other objects, such as trees, power transmission poles or other vehicles.
New technology Hyundai determines the position of the passenger in the cabin after the initial collision. Pillows worked at the first strike, but another blow occurs, and they are no longer able to effectively protect people in the cabin. In this case, the sensors determine the position of the driver and passengers, who after the first strike may be in an irregular position, the system identifies vulnerable zones and begins to react, revealing additional pillows. This ensures the safety of passengers caught in repeated collisions. When creating this system, the Hyundai Motor Group analyzed various scenarios of multiple collisions in order to improve the performance and accuracy of the position of airbags in secondary collisions.
