Honda unveils an airbag that will revolutionize the industry
August 30 2019,
The simple airbag has had the same design for decades, but Honda has developed a brand-new system that will better protect occupants in all possible situations including angled frontal collisions.
The new Honda system is composed of three sections and a fabric in the center to wrap the head. The three sections perfectly protect the head in all types of accidents, even when the head moves to the right or the left in an angled accident.
"This new airbag technology represents Honda's ongoing effort to advance safety in a wider variety of accident scenarios and reflects the innovative thinking of our engineers to meet the challenge of reducing the number of injuries and fatalities on the road, "said Jim Keller, president of Honda R & D Americas Inc." Guided by Honda's commitment to safety for all, our engineers recognize that their work on this kind of groundbreaking safety technology will have a profound impact on people’s life for many years to come.
