Bag-in-belt

As the name suggests, the Bag-in-belt is a combination of a seatbelt and an airbag to further reduce the load on the passengers in the rear seats  ribcage in a frontal collision.
When the vehicle crash sensors detect a frontal impact, the airbag control unit triggers the deployment of the Bag-in-belt. Similar to an airbag deployment, a gasgenerator inflates the multi-layered webbing forcing the integrated stitched seams to rip apart. This result in a three times larger surface area that better distributes the crash force on the occupant to reduce the risk of injury.
 
 
 
The Bag-in-belt is used in exactly the same way as a conventional seatbelt.
