Hyundai’s innovative Hug Airbag is designed for autonomous vehicles, as it deploys instantly when a collision is detected. Unlike standard airbags, it hides within the seat itself and comprises of three chambers, protecting the head, body as well as pelvis area, holding onto the body tightly when deployed.
The issue with current airbag systems is that they do not offer secondary protection when the initial impact is insufficient to cause them to deploy. This multi-collision Hug Airbag system allows airbags to deploy effectively upon a secondary impact by calibrating the status of the vehicle and the occupants, making them ideal for autonomous vehicles.

By improving airbag performance in multi-collision scenarios, we expect to significantly improve the safety of our drivers and passengers. We will continue our research on more diverse crash situations as part of our commitment to producing even safer vehicles that protect occupants and prevent injuries,” said Taesoo Chi, head of Chassis Technology Center at Hyundai Motor Group.
