The car bonnet airbag that will save bikers' lives

Post by jason on Mon Apr 28, 2008 12:48 am

Developed by a Swedish-based company. Could this be the next step for safer biking?

A Swedish company has just revealed the first details of its latest invention - and airbag that covers the bonnet and windscreen of a car in a crash, designed to save biker's lives.

The system, designed by Autoliv Inc, uses an airbag mounted in the A-Pillar of the car. When a front end impact is detected, the airbag inflates covering most of the bonnet and screen.

As part of the development into benefits for not only bikers but cyclists too, the Dutch Cycling Federation has said that over 60 lives could be saved and over 1500 serious injuries could be avoided every year by using these airbags in Holland.

Autoliv Inc said there is no news yet on price or availability yet, but that the system should be available for final testing in the near future.
