Airbag technology for autonomous vehicles

AutotechInsight Analysis Monthly

The advent of automated driving is presenting new challenges for airbag module suppliers

Automotive industry’s focus on active safety technologies―such as antilock-braking system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC) and traction control system (TCS) ―has increased significantly in the past two decades. Automakers are also offering new vehicles with rising number of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), lane departure warning (LDW), blind spot detection (BSD) and automatic emergency braking (AEB), which help drivers in reducing the possibility of accidents. Some of these technologies, such as AEB, can even take corrective action like applying brakes if the driver fails to respond on time to avoid accidents.
