275 × 183There’s a company who’s literally thinking outside of the box on ways to keep you safe. The ZF company has designed an external side airbag to help protect you, your passengers and your vehicle in the event of a side-impact collision. The built-in technology of this airbag allows it to inflate 150 milliseconds before a collision. The manufacturer states the system could reduce side collision impact injuries by 40%. The airbag works with a vehicle’s existing sensor system to detect impending collisions, and carry roughly 5 times the volume of a steering wheel airbag.
