How can airbags be a life saver?

 

The most commonly used definition for an airbag is, it inflates during a car accident and prevents you from injury which is right if you ask what an airbag is but do you know how does it work? Well, it is important for the people to understand how they work and how they are able to protect them.

Airbags deploy as soon as the accidents take place. With the crash sensor that is implemented in them, they are able to determine when the vehicle has been in a crash due to the force of the collision. As soon as the message has been conveyed, the airbag will inflate instantly. Some of them release in about half of a second so that it can keep you in place, after getting to the accident. To avoid the jolt you must always wear a seatbelt.  Failing to do so could cause serious injury or fatality. It’s also important that you’ re seated straight ahead and looking forward. Sitting in an unnatural position can also cause an injury.

The second question which arises is that will the airbag deploy if the car is static? And may continue with What if the car is turned off?

The first scenario can be defined as you are waiting at a red light minding your own business, and a vehicle plows into your grill. Will the air bag deploy?

The answer to the above question is yes, the airbags will inflate because the airbag is designed to work even when you're not driving.

If you are holding because of the red light with the engine on and something hits, the air bag is absolutely powered and ready to deploy if necessary. It's ready anytime the engine is on or your ignition key is on (even if the engine is not running).

The second scenario can be taken as you are sitting at the side of the road, out of gas, and you get hit. The air bag is absolutely powered and ready to deploy if necessary.

The answer is it's ready anytime the engine is on or your ignition key is on (even if the engine is not running). The air bag will still have enough stored battery power to deploy for at least a few minutes. Therefore, keeping you and your car safe!
