Title (EN) OCCUPANT RESTRAINT AND PROTECTION SYSTEM FOR AN AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLE
(FR) SYSTEME DE RETENUE ET DE PROTECTION POUR UNE VOITURE AUTOMOBILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system for restraining and protecting the occupants on the front seat of an automotive vehicle against injury as a result of a collision, wherein an expansible bag (35) is stored in a folded, inoperative position in a compartment (44) on the underside of the roof of the vehicle and generally overlying the laps of the driver and passengers. A pair of elongated arms (51, 52) are pivotally mounted in the vehicle for movement between an upwardly inclined, inoperative position adjacent the windshield posts (53, 54) to a downwardly inclined, operative position adjacent the inner sides of the side doors (21, 22). The distal ends (55) of the arms are connected to the expansible bag (35) and serve to rapidly withdraw and unfold the same from the storage compartment when the system is triggered. After the bag (35) is unfolded and deployed, fluid under pressure is supplied to a pair of laterally spaced compartments (37, 38) in the bag through passages (131, 132) in the arms. A central compartment (39) of the bag inflates with air at atmospheric pressure as a result of inflation of the laterally spaced compartments.
(FR)Systeme de retenue et de protection des occupants du siege avant d"une voiture automobile contre les blessures resultant d"une collision, dans lequel un sac dilatable (35) est emmagasine en position pliee inoperante dans un compartiment (44) sous la partie inferieure du toit du vehicule et surmontant en general les genoux du conducteur et des passagers. Une paire de bras allonges (51, 52) sont montes de facon pivotante dans le vehicule pour bouger entre une position inoperante inclinee vers le haut adjacente entre les montants du pare-brise (53, 54) et une position de fonctionnement inclinee vers le bas adjacente aux parties interieures des portes de cotes (21, 22). Les extremites distales (55) des bras sont reliees au sac dilatable (35) et servent a retirer et a deplier rapidement ce sac de son compartiment de stockage lorsque le systeme est mis en action. Apres que le sac (35) ait ete deplie et deploye, du fluide sous pression est fourni a une paire de compartiments lateralement espaces (37, 38) dans ce sac au travers de conduits (131, 132) dans les bras. Un compartiment central (39) du sac se gonfle d"air a pression atmospherique par suite du gonflement des compartiments lateralement espaces.
