Passive Safety

Passive Safety

When Milliseconds Count

KSS passive safety technology is the cornerstone for generations of pioneering occupant safety advancements. From the earliest introduction of airbag modules and crash sensors, to integrated buckle tension sensors and inflatable seatbelts, along with finely calibrated hybrid inflators, KSS has consistently been a leader in the latest crash protection technologies. In the advent of a new era driven by ADAS and active safety capabilities, where crash dynamics and occupant kinematics will be redefined, the legacy for safety innovation must continue with an equally reliable pipeline of new KSS passive safety systems. Further improved from today, these advanced devices are positioned to meet the rigorous demands of broadening regulations and scale of global markets.

Airbag Technology

As a global leader with an established legacy of expertise in airbag design, development, and production, KSS delivers high performance safety systems for leading vehicle manufacturers worldwide.

Advanced adaptive driver and passenger airbags provide a full array of protection based on occupant size, weight, and position, reducing injury in frontal collisions. In the occurrence of side-impact or rollover events, KSS technologies mitigate injury through side, curtain, and occupant-to-occupant airbag deployment.

As safety needs evolve towards more compact systems, environmentally friendly substances, and safer occupant interaction, KSS advanced engineering teams are paving the way to establish new benchmarks in occupant protection.
