Cover Story
Automated driving will have an impact on occupant safety and vice versa. The new freedom of movement that will be enjoyed by car occupants will increase the focus on airbags and safety belts that are integrated into seats. In the ATZ interview, Michael Büchsner, the Head of the newly created Passive Safety System Division at ZF, discusses the factors that need to be taken into consideration in designing the interior of autonomous cars and explains the progress being made in the field of occupant detection.
