Seatbelt Safety Function reduces auto accident injury severity.

August 8, 2013

ContiGuard Active Emergency Belt Control tightens seatbelts immediately prior to accident, reducing severity of possible injuries by up to 15%. Automatic tightening occurs via reversible electro-mechanical belt tensioner. For additional safety, car windows and sunroof also shut automatically to prevent objects from entering. For this function, driving status of vehicle is analyzed in Safety Control Unit (SCU) with help of vehicle dynamics sensors and signals from other surrounding sensors. Read More

Acceleration Sensor enhances electric vehicle safety.

February 17, 2011

Intended for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, evSAT sensor employs algorithm to detect frontal, rear, or side collision. Accident information is passed onto battery management system, which then shuts off high-voltage battery to eliminate risk of electric shock faced by emergency service personnel responding to accident victims. Comprised of independent triaxial sensor with CAN interface, sensor enables battery shut-off within 0.5 sec of accident of 4 sec max during rollover. Read More

Crash Sensors accelerate relay of crash data.

November 30, 2010

Crash Impact Sound Sensor improves vehicle occupant protection by using structure-borne noise generated during frontal and side-impact collisions to determine how airbags deploy. Analyzing and evaluating collision within milliseconds, algorithms relay data about crash event to vehicle's restraints control module so airbags and pre-tensioners can be fired with proper force at timing. Side-mounted pSAT sensors detect pressure changes in door cavity using entire side door as sensing area. Read More

Safety Sensor System helps pedestrians survive road accidents.

October 18, 2010

Comprised of air hose connected to 2 pressure sensors built flexibly into bumper, pedestrian protection system recognizes collisions with pedestrians and supplies safety systems with information needed to trigger protective measures. Within 10-15 msec of impact, active hood of vehicle is triggered and raised by actuators. This prevents struck pedestrian from being severely injured or killed by impact with hood and underlying engine block. Read More

Optical Sensor prevents traffic crashes in urban areas.

May 25, 2007

By scanning up to 10 m in front of vehicle, closing velocity (CV) sensor helps drivers completely avoid or reduce severity of collisions when traveling at speeds under 25 mph. If calculated distance determines imminent collision, system responds by putting brakes on alert mode to ensure sufficient pressure for stopping. System also initiates automatic braking up to 0.5 g if driver takes foot off accelerator, regulates/optimizes braking power, and tightens seat belts. Read More
