SRS Unit and Sensor

Used as an occupant protection device assisting the seat belts, the acceleration sensor responds to vehicle collisions. This is an electronic control system that adds information from the acceleration sensor inside the unit to information on acceleration sent from the sensor to the supplemental restraint system (SRS) unit, and controls the airbags and pretensioners that tighten the seat belts in the driver's seat, passenger seat and rear seats.

Pop-Up Hood Unit and Sensor

In the system for reducing injuries to pedestrians by raising the hood during vehicle collisions, this is an electronic control unit that activates an actuator that raises the hood in a collision with a pedestrian on the basis of information on acceleration from the accelerometer built into the front bumper.
