Airbags

Airbags are an extremely common feature on modern cars, trucks and SUVs - and typically there are several of them in any given vehicle. Fortunately, most of the time we forget they are even there. Here’s a shout out to the airbag, from Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN.

Airbags as a concept have been around a long time. The first patent for an airbag was filed in 1919, but it wasn’t until the 50s and 60s that technology began to demonstrate that airbags were a viable product. Still, it wouldn’t be until the 80s and 90s until airbags became common, and only in recent years have they become so advanced and all encompassing.

Airbags utilize a system of, sensors, electronics, and explosives to deploy them quickly, and only when necessary. If you have an airbag warning light on, it’s important to get it taken care of in a timely manner - you want them to go off when you need them, and stay put when you don’t.
