Advanced Concepts for Driver Air Cushion Systems 856050
It has long been recognized that cost has been one of the major deterrents to the acceptance of airbag systems in automobiles. This paper addresses some advanced design and development approaches being evaluated by Morton Thiokol's Utah Division toward reducing design, development, and production costs of driver airbag systems. While cost reduction values are not yet available, nor are some of the design concepts proven, the approaches look quite promising
