Road Safety Statistics
Today, more than 1.2 million people die on the world’s roads every year and over 50 million others are injured. Autoliv's pedestrian protection system includes; the Active Hood and the Pedestrian Protection Airbag (PPA).
Autoliv's Active Hood raises instantly when a pedestrian is hit. A sensor system placed in the vehicle's front bumper sends an electrical impulse to two small airbags which lift the rear part of the hood making the pedestrian's head contact a deformable and flexible surface instead of a hard and rigid one. Autoliv has further enhanced its first pedestrian protection system by developing a pair of airbags, one at each windshield pillar. As vehicle hoods tend to become shorter with every new model change, the risk for pedestrians hitting the hard structures around the windshield increases, but this can be prevented by the PPA.> Click here for Autoliv Safety Heritage
