Autoliv Inc. has been a leader in the vehicle safety systems and has proven its leadership again by announcing the developing of a new front center airbag that is design to save lives in side-impact crash situations. The airbag will be displayed at the Capital Markets Day of Autoliv that is be held on 19th November at its technical center in Ogden, Utah.
The new Front Center airbag by Autoliv will help in avoiding driver-to-interior and driver-to-passenger impact. The inboard seat mounted airbag deploys in the space between the driver and the front-seat passenger, providing protection for them from colliding during a side impact and reduces risk of trauma to head, shoulder and chest.
“Research indicates that the new Front Center Airbag can reduce injuries caused by passengers colliding with each other by up to 80%. If there is no one in the front passenger seat, the airbag will offer enhanced driver protection from a far-side collision. It is a technology innovation that underlines Autoliv’s commitment to saving lives and preventing injuries on the roads across the world,” says Scott Dershem, Autoliv Vice President of Development.
Autoliv will be introducing the Front Center airbag in 19 car models in 2020.
