Mercedes Next Generation Seatbelt Headed For Production

Volvo was the 1st car manufacturer to install the automobile 3-point seat-belt in 1955 and since then there has been little changes to the concept that has saved millions of lives. Now Mercedes has unveiled their new active seat-belt buckle technology. Designed for the rear seats, the buckles are power-deployable and emerge from the seats when the rear passenger doors are opened. The buckles then illuminate to ease in the process of buckling up. Once a passenger is belted, the buckle retracts to reduce slack around the pelvis and thorax. The technology also works with the PRE-SAFE system that automatically tensions the belt when an accident is imminent. The active seat-belt buckles will be offered on an upcoming model, so we wouldn’t be surprised if they debut on the next generation S-Class slated for release in 2013.
