Joyson Safety Systems
The FSAB is an airbag designed specifically for additional protection from far-side collisions. The far-side collision scenario is a side impact where the impact occurs on the driver´s opposite side of the vehicle or an interaction of the two front row occupants happens.
The device helps to restrain the driver in a lateral direction and provides cushioning to front seated occupants from potential interaction in side impacts, especially of their heads. These functionalities must be bundled with a limited package situation in the center of the vehicle and a larger range of driver and passenger postures in riding conditions into an inflatable device that is almost invisible and non-disturbing during normal vehicle use. Euro NCAP is the first consumer rating organization, which decided to assess far-side injury protection in their vehicle star rating from 2020 onwards.
