Honda develops world’s first driver-side i-SRS airbag system with Continuously Staged Inflation
Honda has developed the world’s first driver-side i-SRS airbag system that continuously stages the volume of airbag-inflating gas, thereby combining enhanced occupant protection with reduced occupant impact. A Honda innovation, the new i-SRS airbag system features a spiral-shaped seam structure and gas release control valve to control airbag deployment and pressure for faster deployment, reduced occupant impact and a longer period of inflation and occupant protection. As a result, the new system accommodates a broad range of occupant positions and potential collision situations.
Honda plans to implement the new continuously staged inflation i-SRS airbag system on the driver’s side of the Life minicar to be released in Japan in November 2008.
