Future Of Automobile Safety: Transparent car made of acrylic showcases the next generation of automotive safety technology. Frankfurt Motor unveils the next generation of safety technologies, designed to reduce the number of road accidents. TRW Automotive used a life-size acrylic car ‘driven’ by models to show how it is working towards semi-automated driving as well as other new technology innovations to keep drivers and car passengers safe.
The range of airbags and active safety systems such as braking and steering products was revealed in the acrylic car, which also highlights the sensors that are used to collect information from 360 degrees around the vehicle. Data from the sensors is used to make driver assist systems work in a bid to protect drivers, passengers, and pedestrians in emergency situations.
TRW Automotive showed off an advanced radar in its acrylic car that can be used to warn drivers of possible collisions and pedestrians, as well as spark mitigation braking and emergency braking. The see-through car highlights lots of different safety systems including airbags
Included in the acrylic car is an advanced radar that can be used to warn drivers of possible collisions and pedestrians, as well as spark mitigation braking and emergency braking. And new ‘active’ seat belt system is fitted in the vehicle but in a real car that is forced to stop suddenly, it could help manage occupant energy during a crash.
The new seatbelts can reduce slack in driving situations and decrease the possibility of passengers being out of position and more susceptible to injury, the company said.

TRW Automotive revealed that the brake control system (IBC) enables a car to automatically brake and recover energy from braking in one package. With improved pedal feel and performance over conventional systems with a lower overall weight. Another feature shown off in the vehicle is an electrically powered steering system that offers fuel-saving benefits and factors in wind compensation.
