Abstract: front page image
(EN)A passenger airbag assembly (30) Having a first cushion (32) and a second cushion ( 34) is disclosed. An inflator mechanism (36) that independently inflates the first cushion and the second cushion may also to be added. The inflator mechanism may either be a dual stage inflator or two separate inflators. Preferably, the airbag assembly is designed such that the inflator mechanism begins the inflation of the first cushion prior to beginning the inflation of the second cushion. A housing may (50) also be added to the airbag assembly. The housing encloses the inflator mechanism and is attached to the first cushion and the second cushion. The airbag assembly may be designed such that when the first cushion and the second on shion are inflated, the second cushion is positioned between the first cushion and the vehicle's windshield. Furthermore, the airbag assembly may also be made such that when the first cushion is inflated, the first cushion will push a vehicIe occupant towards the vehicle's passenger seat.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un ensemble airbag pour passager équipé d'un premier coussin et d'un second coussin. Un mécanisme de gonflage qui gonfle indépendamment le premier coussin et le second coussin peut aussi être ajouté. Ce mécanisme de gonflage peut consister soit en un appareil de gonflage à deux étages soit en deux appareils de gonflage séparés. De préférence, l'ensemble airbag est conçu de manière que le mécanisme de gonflage commence à gonfler le premier coussin avant de commencer à gonfler le deuxième coussin. Un logement peut aussi être ajouté à l'ensemble airbag. Ce logement renferme le mécanisme de gonflage et est fixé au premier coussin et au second coussin. L'ensemble airbag est conçu de manière que lorsque le premier coussin et le second coussin sont gonflés, le second coussin soit positionné entre le premier coussin et le pare-brise du véhicule. De plus, l'ensemble airbag peut aussi être conçu de manière que lorsque le premier coussin est gonflé, le premier coussin pousse un occupant du véhicule vers le siège pour passager du véhicule.
