AN OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS OF THE PROTECTION OFFERED BY ACTIVE AND PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS
Current comparisons between active and passive restraint systems are stil subjective and emotional. Statistical data, accident surveys, theoretical studies, and crash test results allow a technical analysis. Taking into account echnological problems related to various devices and considering their economical incidence and their efficiency, it is possible to form an objective opinion. Conclusion is that the different principles of restraints are not opposed, but appear as successive steps of a same evolution.
