On the creation of external airbag as a supplementary zone that absorbs impact energy, ZF is working for a few years. Already carried out crash tests. The automotive industry is not yet ready to make such pillows, but everything can change when the drones will be rolled out to the streets.

German company ZF is seriously concerned with the safety of Autonomous cars, because they fit perfectly into the concept of Vision Zero — a world without accidents and harmful emissions. Advanced development ZF presented at a recent Symposium Airbag 2018 in Mannheim. One of them is an external side bag. According to the authors of the project, this airbag 40% reduces the severity of occupant injury. “Mattress” with a length of about two meters and a height of about 50 cm has a volume of 300-350 l and inflates in 60-80 milliseconds.

Among other things, ZF offers to introduce a system for 3D monitoring of the interior of the car (picture on the left) to track the position and behavior of the riders. Then security tool will adapt to people in real time. For the external airbag is sufficient monitoring undertaken by the lidar, radar and other equipment autopilot.

Current protection measures in vehicles are made with the expectation that the driver and passengers strapped in their clearly delineated areas. However, the drones give freedom: a man turns in the chair, moves it around the cabin, taking “atypical” posture. Besides the wheel, which is traditionally embedded in the cushion can be folded or missing. To predict, for example, where at the moment of impact will be the driver’s head is becoming increasingly difficult. So one of the solutions seen by the outer cushion.

Something remains the same — the passenger in any case will be in the chair. Sitting or how to Volvo 360c, lying does not matter. Therefore, security systems need to be integrated in the seat or position around him. So, in ZF came up with “Central” pillow.

In 2019 on models unnamed European manufacturer will have a new knee, airbag from ZF. It is 30% more compact than all the peers, through body tissue weighs a lot less, and therefore has a positive effect on fuel consumption.

Salon of Autonomous machines we are increasingly presented as living (examples: time, two, three), means to protect the people in it will have in the house. Over external cushions contemplating a company, but no unified vision. Firm ZF, as a highly sought-after supplier of components, in theory, can play a unifying role. In addition, the Association of Euro NCAP intends to 2020 to expand and to tighten the requirements for Autonomous transport. For example, for a five-star rating is unlikely to be enough for the current level of protection for the back riders.

The wheelbase is likely to be similar to the hatch — 2650 mm, but total length will exceed 4310 mm, and the trunk will be more 395 L.

The first official photos of the model Kia Xceed will be shown in the summer, and the premiere will take place on the tenth of September at Motorshow in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the SUV with bumpers that did not appear in the body color, rides on the roads of South Korea without any masking. And now there is no doubt that Xceed got your own body, not recycled “shell” hatchback Ceed.

The designers have tried to distance themselves from Xceed Sid. Headlight cutout — new, long lights, too. Another grille in the front bumper the horizontal ties. Silver paste instead of the rear window looks strange. Forked release is not the same as the Sid GT.

While none of the representatives sadovskoy family, including Cerato, no all-wheel drive. Deprived of it, and a new Soul, and Stonic. But Xceed is theoretically able to break the vicious circle if, for example, comes closer to the model of Hyundai Kona or “Rob” the elder brother of the Sportage. In addition, the approach of a new global compactthat will not only front-wheel drive.

The separation motors on the nominations, there was a marked change. If the earlier category was different in the working volume, now in power. So, it is possible to compare the hybrids and electric vehicles, and rotary-piston internal combustion engine in which the amount is taken into account distinctive, and theoretically, the gas turbine unit, in which the working volume is not there.

In the category “From 150 to 250 HP” won turboservice Audi 2.0 TFSI, which in different versions written more than two dozen models of Volkswagen.

Supercharged boxer “four” 2.5 from a pair of Porsche 718 Boxster S/Cayman S (350 HP) won first place in the category “From 250 to 350 forces.”
