Occupant Spatial
Sensing Systems
Read about the exciting developments of sensors that can determine the size and position of the vehicle driver and passenger. Such sensors may be introduced in future vehicles and then allow a more tailored response of the vehicle restraint system to the situation at hand.
Occupant Simulations Computer analysis is used extensively to study and optimize the design of airbags. This page shows some examples of such analysis. The computer programs constantly improve to allow very accurate analysis of a crash event that normally happens too quick to observe.
NHTSA Safer Car The Safer Car Site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation. It contains important information for shorter drivers and the injury potential of airbags for them and children who are placed in the front passenger seat. The main site also has information about the safety ratings of new vehicles (NCAP).

Highway Safety
Issues information and study results regarding airbags as well as many other vehicle related products. The IIHS also conducts its own crash testing, the results of which are accessible from their home page.
The National Safety
Council - Airbag
Safety Campaign
See the statistics on the National Campaign to increase safety belt use. Bring yourself up to date on the law in your state regarding seat belt use. Read about the risks of airbags to particular groups of occupants and what measures you can take if you belong to a risk group.
Autoliv

Delphi Automotive

Takata

TRW Automotive
These are the web sites of some of the key players in the development of restraint systems. With the demand for improved protection against side-impact and roll-over crashes, as well as for a more intelligent approach to frontal crash protection, there is much going on behind the closed doors of these companies. To persuade the car makers to buy their latest products, they often show them to the public to create a demand. You can learn a lot on these sites about the various components that make up a safety system too.
Buckle Up!
