Hyundai Mobis makes inroads into the global 'safety technology' market with the world's first roof airbag

SEOUL, South Korea, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Mobis said on 26 March that the company is concentrating on enhancing the reliability of new safety devices like the roof airbag and is planning to leverage its differentiated technology to take on the global market.

Hyundai Mobis' roof airbag is deployed under the surface side of the vehicle in a rollover accident, covering the entire roof in just 0.08 seconds, protecting and preventing all passengers from being ejected from the sunroof.

Since it began mass-producing its first airbags in 2002, Hyundai Mobis has continuously introduced advanced airbag technologies. Recently, the company is developing convergence technologies in safety on a full scale.

Meanwhile, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted a safety evaluation of Hyundai Mobis' roof airbag.

Last January, NHTSA gave a presentation on the 'Status of NHTSA's Roof Ejection Mitigation Research' at 2020 SAE Government/Industry Meeting hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and disclosed the evaluation results of Hyundai Mobis' roof airbag.

NHTSA is a US government agency whose mission is to save lives, prevent injuries and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes, through education, research, safety standards and enforcement activity.
