The explosion of an airbag as never before had seen it, at 15.000 fps (video)

Honda airbags Takata

Never is something too pleasant talk of how Act the various systems of security passive of a vehicle, although is something that all should of know. We all like to know the operation of multiple connectivity and infotainment systems, the different menus from our screens and the innumerable, if I allow the expression, “pijotadas” that bring our vehicles today. But, not is more interesting know how you can save the life a system of your own car?

In the following video uploaded to the network a few days ago by the distorted perception of YouTube channel we can see to slow the process of detonation, inflation and subsequent deflation of an airbag. The guys in this video have used a home stand, an airbag for the driver of a Honda vehicle and a battery. Really no need nothing more to see it working, but it is something that we should not do at home and much less without a few measures of security very high.

As we see in a first time, real time does not appreciate the airbag explosion as well as internal “filling” of the stock market. Just go see the central part of the flywheel that keeps the airbags and pyrotechnic system to see the fully deployed air bag. These guys and the slow enables high quality camera allow us to see the whole process. Then us it put to a speed of 1,300 fps, and already appreciate that even so is inflated in just some moments of reproduction and begins to deflate is.

In a third shot, this time already to 15.000 fps, can see very close detonation with the break of the lid that allows the release of the element, the inflation and the way that the airbag takes moment after moment, the moment of total airbag filling and the subsequent deflation. We don’t know you, but to us this sequence of images has left us impressed. We already knew how it worked, and, logically, we were aware of their duties, but we had never seen it in this definition and so slow and detailed.


Much beyond being a curiosity, must bear in mind that this system was introduced three decades ago in the first cars. Since then, it has saved thousands of lives, both drivers and occupants and, for several years, all the new passenger cars by law must have of them. View the impressive strength and speed with which this time is displays, imaginaréis that all must be measured to the thousandth of second. A detonation maladjusted, early or late of the bag of air in case of shock produces more injuries of which could avoid (there are them famous effects of them airbags defective of Takata), by what those studies are thorough.
