Restraint System Development

In the early 1990s, we developed a European airbag system for drivers and front seat passengers for use on the European market. Since, then we have constantly expanded and perfected our development processes. We are now able to create highly sophisticated automotive safety systems that meet the specific requirements of the international market.
 

Heading for greater safety
 

Restraint System Development

The use of special simulation tools for calculation and tests enables us to check different load cases without destructive testing, which considerably reduces the need for prototypes and shortens development times.
 
Today’s frontal safety systems are optimized for a wide range of collision scenarios, involving rigid wall collision configurations at different angles as well as various types of impacts with deformable barriers.

Structural development
 
One of the major focuses of our frontal development is the front structure with the rigid passenger compartment.
 
The key to successful development in this arena is to align the elements that are designed to deform and those that are designed to absorb energy. Our close coordination with structural and restraint systems development means that we are able to achieve outstanding results in this field.
 

A methodical approach to success
 
To ensure that every project is successful, we consistently apply our proprietary OPEARS (Optimum Development Methodology for Adaptive Restraint Systems) method, which secures optimum development methodology for adaptive restraint systems.
