[YesAuto Industry] A few days ago, according to foreign media reports, Continental is studying a new Occupant Safety Monitoring System (OcSM), which dynamically adjusts the deployment of airbags by monitoring the posture of the occupants in the car to better protect the occupants. This technology is an extension of the current passive safety technology, or it will be officially installed in cars around 2023.
It is reported that the principle of the occupant safety monitoring system is to use a variety of sensors (such as cameras and seat sensors) combined with artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to give the best seat posture suggestions, and it can also adjust based on different seat positions. The deployment strategy of airbags. Continental said that in the event of a collision, a reasonable airbag position plays a great role in safety. For example, if the driver is too close to the airbag deployment point, he may hit the steering wheel before the airbag detonates.
In the future, the occupant safety monitoring system will be integrated into the platform of the airbag control unit, and the restraint system configuration can be modified to the best state according to the sitting posture of each occupant in the car. In the event of an accident, the restraint system can To activate. Especially in the era of autonomous driving, when the occupants have more freedom in the car, the occupant safety monitoring system will play a greater role.
