Occupant Sensing Utilizing Perturbation of Electric Fields 971051

Automatic occupant sensing is acknowledged as an important addition to airbag and crash sensing systems. Increased system performance will result by being able to control deployment based on the presence, orientation and behavior of the passenger. This paper examines the theoretical background of using electric fields to obtain the desired information about vehicle occupants and the challenges of implementing with high reliability on a mass production and mass use basis.
