Child Safety via Anti-Trap Proximity Technology 2006-01-1484

Sir Galahad™ anti-trap windows prevent injury and death, creating a new standard of care for automotive power closures. NHTSA estimates 500 people, approximately 50% of which are children, are treated in hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries related to power windows [11].
Sir Galahad™ technology is easy to install and works on all applications, independent of window shape or geometry. The system is ideally suited for power windows, sunroofs, tailgates, sliding doors, trunks and any other power closures. This paper describes the design and operation of Sir Galahad™ anti-trap windows, including experience of sensitivity response to both animate and inanimate objects. Also discussed are vehicle installation, performance test results, and competitive performance comparisons.
