Passive and Integrated Safety

Airbag Control Unit (ACU) - Extended

ACU Extended - the standard mid-size module for most markets – provides advanced Passive Safety control functions e.g. for multi-stage airbags and other sophisticated restraints.

Additional safety functions can be integrated within a modular concept, such as Active Rollover Sensing, which distinguishes and identifies impending vehicle rollover events at an early stage. Vehicle Dynamics Sensing can be integrated as an additional enhancement of the ACU Extended. The advanced product is based on the modular SAFE platform concept that allows an economical and efficient safety control unit development according to the needs of automotive OEMs worldwide. The SAFE platform offers a high level of flexibility and integration options with an optimized effort for development.
