Every car brand is on a lookout for a car safety technology that may save the life of both the passengers and the pedestrian. Every newly launched safety technology is designed to make the roads safer for everyone around. The engineers have always managed to provide the best of their work and facilitated the car companies with the new advances in this field.
The new models of Mercedes-Benz E-Class are termed as one of the most powerful and the safest cars of year 2017 manufactured by the brand. The powerful E-Class of Mercedes-Benz is not only a refined combination of power and design, but it features the new technology in car safety as well.
Four of the latest advancements in car safety technologies are briefed here.
A Modern Car Safety Technology – Pre-Safe Impulse Side
Whenever an innovation is made, it is always made by keeping some certain facts in mind. Such as, to design an innovative safety system that is useful too, the designers prefer to consider various factors that are generally ignored.
Many car safety gadgets have been devised to lessen the damage from the frontal collision. However, Pre-Safe Impulse Side is designed to take care of its driver in the events of side collisions. It uses the side radars to sense the distance of any incoming vehicle that might cause the side collision. If it detects an incoming side-impact collision, it immediately performs two actions. These are:
- It inflates the air chambers in the side bolsters of the backrest.
- It imparts a side pulse and moves the driver and the passengers to the center of the car.
The Pre-Safe Impulse Side system activates and takes the preventive actions within the fraction of seconds and moves the driver and the passengers from the acute areas.
Preventive Occupant Protection
The multiple award-winning Pre-Safe Plus System also known as Preventive Occupant Protection System is linked to the other safety assist technologies of the car i.e. Brake Assist System and the Electronic Stability System. This new technology in the car safety uses the data collected from above mentioned systems and then responds in milliseconds. When it activates, it performs the following functions:
- Reversible Belt Tensioning
- Adaptive Belt Force Limiters
- Automotive Closing of windows
- Sliding of car roof panel
- Re-positioning of front passenger’s seat accordingly
Crash test analysis showed that this feature helps to reduce the strain on head and neck up to a significant limit. If the crash is fortunately avoided to happen, every feature is restored back to its original position for the reuse purpose.
Neck-Pro Head Restraints
A whiplash injury is usually caused by a rear-impact car accident and out of all the injuries, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous injuries that can cause some serious problems in the spine as well. Neck-Pro Head Restraints have been designed in almost all models of E class Mercedes-Benz as one of the best car safety items.
It comes with the provision of two side bolsters that enhance the comfort factor for driver. Its working is based on an Electronic system that is installed in the car. As soon as it senses a rear-end collision, the springs in head restraints are released and headrest is moved 40 millimeters forward and 30 millimeters upward. The new adjustable positions of head rest are designed to give the driver and the front-seat passenger the maximum protection in the event of an accident.
Car Seat safety test has revealed the results and concludes that it is one of the latest and the safest technologies to be introduced in a car.
Adaptive Brake Lights
A car brand gets popular when it not only provides a classically-designed vehicle to its buyers but furnishes it with the advanced features as well. Generally, mostly brands make the necessary safety arrangements in a car so that the dangerous outcomes could be avoided in a collision.
Mercedes-Benz has outdone many such car companies and introduced another new technology in car safety that not only takes the precautionary measures for the passengers but warns the other vehicles behind it too.
Adaptive Brake Lights are used as a warning sign for the following traffic on the road. It uses a sensor that detects the speed of a car. The moment the car reaches from speed over than the 50 Km/h to a standstill position, it activates. These adaptive brake lights then help the vehicles behind to react accordingly. This is how the risk of an accident can be reduced in the emergency situations.
Keep Your Senses Wide Awake!
In the advanced age of technology, companies are competing with each other in order to provide more and more effective back-up plans for the emergency situations in a car. A lot of effort is involved by the designers and engineers to provide a newer car safety technology that promises for the safety of people even in more efficient way.
However, it is never advisable to sit and drive carelessly and rely completely on technologies. So, ask yourself first that either you are willing to risk your life or save it?
