Airbags for pedestrians

    The idea is to equip cars with the airbag system for pedestrians to reduce the force of an impact on people outside the car.
    The airbag will be contained beneath the hood just next to the windshield, and will automatically deploy if the sensors in the front bumper detect contact between the car and a person. The system will work in conjunction with the Pedestrian Detection technology, which will detect if a person walks in front of the car and will automatically activate the brakes if the driver doesn't respond in time.
