Air bags mainly used in cars for safety purpose of driver and passenger but now they are used in many vehicle like trucks, buses, racing cars, and many more to the safety of driver during collision. Car air bags are mostly installed in high budget cars and in luxury cars thus providing extra feature/use for safety.
WORKING OF AIRBAGS IN CAR
- When a car hit to any obstacle then its speed de accelerate gradually.
- After collision of car through any obstacle impact sensor work and it sense the speed of impact.
- After that air sensor work through impact sensor and it allow the nylon filled in the cylinder in function.
- Working of all the process are so quick that the time between collision and airbags open is 1-2 sec.
This was the information about car air bags and its working. This article will help you understand the importance of installing car air bags and the lifetime safety it provides. However car air bags also have its limitation. Its not the GOD Device that can save you from all accidents but are a much proved soul mate for rash drivers.
