Title (EN) PEAK LOAD DETERMINATION FOR DEPLOYING LOAD LIMITING RESTRAINT DEVICES
(FR) DETERMINATION DE DETECTION DE CHARGE DE CRETE PERMETTANT DE DEPLOYER DES DISPOSITIFS ASSUJETTIS A UNE LIMITATION
Abstract:
(EN) A method of operating a load limiting restraint system including the steps of receiving an acceleration value and also receiving a signal indicative of an occupant size. The signal received of occupant size is combined with the acceleration value to predict a load on the occupant and the restraint system. If the predicted load exceeds a predicted load value then the load limiting device is actuated to gradually reduce and selectively release the seatbelt.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de fonctionnement de système assujetti à une limitation de charge qui consiste à recevoir une valeur d'accélération et à recevoir aussi un signal indicateur de la taille d'un occupant. Le signal reçu de la taille de l'occupant est combiné avec la valeur d'accélération de façon à prévoir une charge sur l'occupant et le système d'assujettissement. Si la charge prévue dépasse une valeur de charge prévue, le dispositif de limitation de charge est activé de façon à progressivement réduire et sélectivement relâcher la ceinture de sécurité.
