Volvo Cars offers a new solution that can provide protection in case of a serious accident: set in the basic configuration of the new Volvo XC90 security system include a system to prevent Congress from the road. According to the company, at the exit of the road people in the car can move in different directions, and therefore it is necessary to ensure reliable fixation system of the people on the seats. Using the information coming from sensors located in the front of the car, the new system Volvo is able to determine in advance the script exit road. Using drives the belts are tightened in order to push the human body to the seat. The tension force of the seat belt is 1 mm/MS, this means that the system is capable of tensioning the belt 100 mm in just 0.1 seconds. The belts remain tense during the entire time the vehicle is in motion.
To help prevent damage to the spine, between the cushions of the seat and the frame is equipped with special elements, they are mechanically deformed and reduce vertically acting on the human forces that arise in the case of a hard landing of the vehicle after the exit road. As a result, the human body is securely held in a vertical position, and the system simultaneously provides impact energy absorption, therefore, significantly reduced the risk of causing harmful damage to the spine.
In addition, Volvo is committed to providing the driver with such systems, which can help to prevent the exit road. In the new Volvo XC90 are two of them: the control system for lane and system monitoring driver fatigue. Control system lane helps the driver to keep the car within its lane through efforts in the steering, if the security system detects unintentionally leaving the lane. System monitoring driver fatigue detects that the driver is tired or lose concentration, and warns about it. In the new Volvo XC90 this system is supplemented by a function with a hint of places to stop.
