BeBop Sensors Automotive Occupant Classification System (OCS) is a new passenger detection system integrated in the seats, allowing you to adjust the airbag depending on the occupant.
BeBop announced Sensors Automotive Occupant Classification System (OCS), a new passenger detection system integrated in the seats, particularly advanced, allowing you to adjust the operation of the airbags in a much more accurate way.
In fact currently the OCS systems are based solely on weight bearing and are therefore not very advanced, such as failing to distinguish between the shopping bags, the child safety seat or person, with consequences on the airbag control, which in practice will only be enabled or disabled by the system.
Sensors Automotive Occupant Classification System instead is able to read in real time and cross between their different parameters, the size of the occupant’s weight to the rigid bottom of a seat, the tendency to bend left and right, back and forth, to cross legs etc. so you can distinguish between a human and an object.
In this way the adjustment of the airbag system will be much more granular and accurate. BeBop is already working with several automotive OEMs to develop and commercialize coatings incorporating the new OCS. The latter, with a thickness of 1 mm, is much thinner and lighter than the traditional ones of those based on liquid, also it is waterproof and has no moving parts, an aspect which makes it also particularly safe.
