Title (EN) INTEGRAL INFLATABLE OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE RETENUE GONFLABLE ASSURANT UNE PROTECTION INTEGRALE AUX OCCUPANTS D'UN VEHICULE AUTOMOBILE
Abstract:
(EN) An inflatable restraint system for providing protection to an occupant (32) in a moving vehicle (30) including a module (10) disposed adjacent to the chest area of the vehicle occupant (32), the module (10) having an airbag (12) and an explosive device (18) for exerting a controlled force against the occupant (32) in a direction opposite the direction of motion of the occupant (32) caused by rapid deceleration of the vehicle (30) while simultaneously inflating the airbag (12) adjacent to the occupant (5). A second embodiment is also disclosed, including an ancillary module (40) disposed adjacent to the rear base of the occupant's neck, providing an airbag (42) for inflation behind the occupant's head while simultaneously exerting a force opposite the direction of motion of the occupant's head, as caused by the backlash forces acting against the occupant (32) following initial impact of the occupant (32) with a forward airbag (12).
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un système de retenue gonflable servant à assurer une protection anti-collision à un occupant (32) d'un véhicule automobile en déplacement (30), ce système comprenant un module (10) disposé à proximité de la zone pectorale de l'occupant (32) et est constitué par un coussin d'air (12) et par un dispositif explosif (18), lequel exerce une force régulée contre le corps de l'occupant (32) dans une direction opposée à la direction de déplacement du corps de l'occupant (32) en cas de décélération rapide du véhicule (30), tout en gonflant simultanément le coussin d'air (12) placé près de l'occupant (32). Dans un second mode de réalisation, ledit système comprend un module auxiliaire (40) disposé à proximité adjacente de la nuque de l'occupant et formant un coussin d'air (42) destiné à se gonfler derrière la tête de l'occupant, tout en exerçant simultanément une force opposée à la direction de déplacement de la tête de l'occupant, dû aux forces du contre-coup qui agissent contre le corps de l'occupant (32) immédiatement après le choc initial de celui-ci contre le coussin d'air (12) placé devant lui.
