Brake operated Pre-crash seat belt system
- Safety Technologies
A motorized seat belt retractor restraints the occupant in the following situations.
- The system detects emergency braking by the speed and amount of the brake pedal operation.
- Intelligent Brake Assist is activated.
Brake operated pre-crash seat belt system helps minimize the occupant's motion during sudden braking to enable the driver to control the vehicle in an emergency situation. If the crash is unavoidable, early seat belt restraint can help maximize the effectiveness of the other occupant protection devices (such as air bags).
