Acceleration Satellite

Decentralized acceleration satellite sensor gSAT for all-around protection: the intelligent crash sensors are the perfect complement to the SPEED airbag control unit in a crash. In a collision the acceleration satellites gSAT deliver an additional plus in support. They measure and supply the information on the acceleration values in the rigid vehicle structures to the SPEED airbag control unit. SPEED can determine both – the duration of intrusion and the intensity of the crash – and activate lifesaving restraint systems in just milliseconds.
