Toyoda Gosei Advances Driver-side Airbag with Novel Structure that Refines Driver Safety

Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. has advanced a driver-side airbag with a novel structure that can safeguard the occupant in a better manner. This airbag is utilized in the new Honda Civic that was introduced in North America in June 2021.

It is installed in the center of the steering wheel; driver-side airbags expand during frontal crashes to alleviate the effect on the driver’s head and chest. In order to more securely protect the traveler during angled frontal accidents, the new airbag utilizes an advanced donut-shaped structure to cradle and hold the head to decrease rotation. This will aid to suffice the need for new car assessment curriculums in North America and in other places that are projected to become stricter in the forthcoming years.
