Occupant Protection

Occupant protection refers to safety features designed to protect occupants of motor vehicles in the event of a crash. These systems can be 'active' or 'passive.' Active devices provide protection only if the user performs some specific act, such as fastening a seat belt. Passive devices, such as airbags, require no action on the part of the occupant.
