Joyson Safety Systems
The FSAB is an airbag designed specifically for additional protection from far-side collisions. The far-side collision scenario is a side impact where the impact occurs on the driver´s opposite side of the vehicle or an interaction of the two front row occupants happens.
Outside pedestrian protection airbags aim to reduce the severity of head injuries by absorbing energy at the points of a vehicle that a pedestrian would most likely impact during a collision.
As an e-mobility solution the front subframe primary role continues to be vehicle ride and handling while absorbing loads from the road and isolating the NVH from the rest of the vehicle body structure. For quieter EVs with heavy battery packs the frame provides mounting locations for the steering gear, control arms, EV powertrain and crash safety structures.
