The automotive active headrest is a passive safety system, and it is also known as active head restraint. It helps to protect occupants from neck injuries in case of an accident. It is majorly useful in case of a rear collision. According to the study of the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), occupants in a vehicle suffer serious neck injuries in case of a rear collision. Even if the impact of the rear collision is not severe. The neck injury happens because of the relative backward movement neck and chest, a chest gets the support of the seat, but the neck continues to move backward amid impact. This sudden backward movement of a neck results in severe injuries to the neck. In such a situation, active seat headrest plays a significant role by giving support to the occupant's neck.
