At present, the safety performance of vehicles more and more attention by consumers, the number of airbags in the car is also more and more, many focus on safety performance of vehicles, has been equipped with the car before and after ten airbags. But Honda says the number of airbags is not enough, and that it needs to install airbags outside to protect pedestriansafety. Recently, according tomedia reports, Honda Motor Co. has applied for a special airbag patent, the protection of airbags by laymen, can protect the vehicle in the impact of pedestrians or vehicles, to reduce pedestrian injury.
Specifically, from the patent diagram, the front of the vehicle is equipped with sensors, can identify the detection of objects in front, if detected will be about to hit pedestrians or bicycles, motorcycles, will be before the collision, the active explosion of the airbag, to reduce the other side’s personal injury.
At the same time, sensors detect the speed and kinetic energy in the event of a collision, which determines the intensity and speed of the airbag explosion and avoids the danger that the airbag may pose to pedestrians.
In addition, Honda applied for another patent. It can prevent vehicles from slipping off the bonnet when they hit pedestrians, causing further injury.
It has to be said that Honda has been leading other car companies in terms of pedestrian protection. The current market in the Sale of Accord models, there are equipped with active-bounce-open-bonnet pedestrian protection device, when the vehicle unfortunately hit pedestrians, the hood will actively bounce open, reducing pedestrian damage.
However, there is feedback from car owners, this configuration of the error rate is high, to the owner of the car to bring no small economic loss and trouble. Some netizens even said that one of his own cats jumped on to their bonnet and was ejected directly by the bonnet. And he went to the 4S shop to repair the hood, and spent more than 10,000.
At present, active pedestrian protection devices do have benefits for driving safety, but on the other hand, the wrong transmission of protective devices can also cause considerable damage to the owners. Therefore, there are requests from owners to cancel this configuration. What do you think of this?
