    Next generation of safety technologies showcased

    Next generation of safety technologies showcased

    The Frankfurt Motor Show has laid out the future of safety technology, which is been specially developed to cut the number of road accidents.

    A life-size acrylic car ‘driven’ by models was used by TRW Automotive to highlight its move towards semi-automated driving. Other new technology innovations to make cars safer also featured.

    TRW has predicted vehicles will be full of more intelligent safety features over the next 10 years, including those that will be able to foresee road conditions.

    If you have been involved in a crash and you think it was not your fault, then you could be eligible to make a car accident claim and Accident Advice Helpline would be delighted to help you.

    New safety systems to protect drivers

    TRW Automotive unveiled a number of airbags and active safety systems in the acrylic car. It also emphasised the sensors used to gather data from 360 degrees around the vehicle.

    The information from the sensors helps driver assist systems protect the motorist, passengers and pedestrians when danger strikes.

    An advanced radar warns drivers of hazards and pedestrians, while helping to ease braking and emergency braking.

    A new ‘active’ seat belt system helps control the energy of the driver and passengers in a collision. TRW Automotive said the seatbelts can lessen slack and reduce the risk of injury.

    New braking and steering products

    An integrated brake control system allows a vehicle to brake without human intervention to save energy.

    The firm claimed it provides ‘improved pedal feel’ and performance compared to normal systems with a lower overall weight.

    An electrically-powered steering system brings fuel-saving benefits and takes into account factors like wind.

    TRW Automotive chairman and CEO John Plant said: “Over the next decade, active safety systems will become increasingly intelligent as greater efforts are made to reduce the number of road fatalities worldwide.”
