Airbag is a concept that refers to a airbag which, if a crash occurs, inflates automatically to protect those traveling in a vehicle, cushioning the impact. The German company Mercedes Benz patented the technology in 1971.

AirbagMost of the cars manufactured today have airbags. The set includes sensors to detect collisions; devices that generate a chemical reaction to produce nitrogen or another gas in a fraction of a second; and the bag proper that is inflated with the gas.

Thus, if a car crashes, the airbag sensors are activated and the airbag inflates almost instantaneously. Instead of hitting the steering wheel, dashboard, or other hard parts of the car, occupants car, they hit against the already inflated bag.

There are the front airbags, the side airbags, the rear airbags and the curtain airbags. It is important to mention that the presence of this mechanism of safety in the car does not imply that the use of the seat belt It is no longer necessary: ​​both resources are complementary and, acting together, they manage to reduce the lethality of road accidents.
