Restraint Control System
The Restraint Control System is the core of a vehicle’s passive safety concept. Acceleration and pressure sensors detect vehicle crashes. An Airbag Control Unit hosts all features for impact protection (Airbag firing, seatbelt pretensioning) and provides a number of other safety- and homologation relevant features, such as the Event-Data-Recorder and seat-belt-reminders.
Restraint Control System – Feature Overview
The following features can be realized by our Restraint Control System. All listed features are compliant with the upcoming General Safety Regulation requirements. As such, the Airbag Control Unit is a key enabler for vehicle legislation.
- Front Crash detection
- Side Crash detection
- Rear Crash detection
- Rollover detection
- Warning Lamp
- Event Data Recorder
- Energy Reserve
- Internal Sensors
- Crash Output (CAN/PWM)
- Seat Belt Reminder
Restraint Control System – Hardware Overview
Airbag Control Unit
The safety computing unit hosts all features of the safety restraint system. It supports up to 12 satellite sensors and additional 5 analogue inputs, e.g. from seat track sensors.
Pressure and Acceleration Sensor
Together with to the internal sound and 3D-acceleration sensor of the ACU, the satellite p-Sat pressure sensors and g-sat acceleration sensors provide additional crash information.
