The time immediately preceding an accident and the period in which it actually occurs can be as brief as the blink of an eye. Within this diminutive time span our sensors and processing systems provide powerful performance in the service of occupant safety. For example, they decide within milliseconds whether life-saving measures such as airbags and seatbelt tensioners need to be triggered.
The occupant protection system keeps the accelerations and forces acting on occupants in the event of an accident as low as possible.
