As "the special blanket of safety" from Volvo will work


The other day has presented to Volvo the autonomous electric concept car under the name 360c in which have included "a special blanket of safety" (by analogy with belts and safety cushions) on a case when you sleep in horizontal position in the car.

is a blanket - attempt to resolve one of unpleasant problems which engineers of autonomous cars face: how to ensure safety of passengers on vehicles of the fifth level (full autonomy without the permission on management from the driver) who sleep. Now drivers are protected by three-point seat belts and safety cushions. But in lying situation these receptions won't work because seat belts hold you in a shoulder and hips where the human body best of all absorbs blow. How to protect the lying driver? If you lay down, Lotta Jacobson, the senior technical expert of Volvo explains, the geometry will change. The blanket will turn on limiters which will drag on around your shoulders and areas of hips in case of collision or rigid braking. At first sight, everything is simple.

of Complexity begin when someone begins to sleep on one side. What will be if the blanket gets confused or will fall down from a bed? What if it inadvertently presses other part of a body, for example, a neck? Engineers of Volvo still should handle these issues.

Eventually, safety cushions and belts too not always work as it is necessary.
