The airbag inflator receives an electronic signal transmitted by the airbag ECU instructing it to release nitrogen gas to inflate
Foremost among the changes is so-called air bag depowering, which means installing air bags that inflate
more slowly and to a lesser volume than the original designs.
There are several different ways in which air bag covers allow the air bag to inflate
On the driver's side, in a frontal and semi-frontal impact at over 30 km/h, the air bag is designed to inflate
automatically within 40 milliseconds then to deflate progressively, as the driver's head meets it, to cushion the impact.
Faced with mounting public anxiety over the danger that air bags pose to small adults and children, the Transportation Department has decided to allow drivers to have the air bags disconnected and manufacturers to make bags that inflate
more slowly, government and private safety experts said Thursday.
N2Revolution plans to promote this alternative to regular compressed air currently being used to inflate
Included in the kit is a powerful, palm-sized air compressor and accessories to inflate
tires in minutes.
