An inflatable bag deployed in front or side impact intended to cushion and restrain a vehicle's occupants. First installation of an airbag in Corvette came in 1990.
automobile safety device
The inflatable part of an automotive supplemental restraint system.
a device which is inflated in milli-seconds to prevent the driver or a passenger being hurled forward and injured in a crash
a fabric bag that inflates rapidly when required from the steering wheel centre or dashboard
a safety device that is supplemental to properly worn safety belts
a simple plastic bladder that is inserted in the rear coil spring and inflated
Concealed sac in hub of steering wheel or dashboard which inflates during a crash. Many cars now have driver and passenger airbags as standard. Frontal airbags are fully effective only in front-on collisions. Side airbags are gradually being introduced. Small children should not be placed in front seats with airbags. Latest models of BMW 3 series and Mercedes S class have as many as eight, with curtain (window) airbags being the newest variety
A passive restraint system that uses an explosive device to inflate a bag at a high rate of speed. The bag inflates with a gas and then quickly deflates when a vehicle occupant is thrown into it. It is mounted in the steering wheel on the driver's side of the vehicle and in the dashboard on the passenger's side. There are also airbags installed for side impact collisions. Some passenger-side airbags use the windshield to position the deploying bag.
A secondary safety restraint which will inflate in 25 milliseconds in serious front collisions to protect the passengers and driver.
Air-filled bag that helps prevent head and upper-body injuries during severe collisions. Front airbags are deployed from the steering wheel and the instrument panel. Side airbags are deployed from the door and curtain airbags drop from the roof.
It is a security feature that is mounted into most of the car nowadays. As its name describe, it is a bag which will pop up very instantly when an emergency happens. The bags contain rich air preventing the driver or passenger to knock against panel in the car. Go Back Top
A supplemental safety system in vehicles that inflates to cushion an occupant during a collision.
A device which is part of the passive safety system. In the event of an accident, sensors will cause the airbag to be deployed so that your head will be pillowed by the bag instead of hitting the dash. Airbags are not used in F1 at this time because if the airbag systems being too slow for F1 crash speeds.
A safety device which is triggered when there is a severe impact to the front of a vehicle. A signal is sent to the airbag upon impact, and a gas is produced to inflate the airbag within a fraction of a second, cushioning the driver or passenger and preventing more serious head injuries.
An airbag, also known as a Supplementary/Secondary Restraint System (SRS), an Air Cushion Restraint System (ACRS), or the Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) is a flexible membrane or envelope, inflatable to contain air or some other gas. Air bags are most commonly used for cushioning, in particular after very rapid inflation in the case of an automobile collision.
