Difference Between Automotive Active Safety System And Passive Safety System

Since automotives come onto the road, we have been paying attention to both drivers and pedestrians’ safety. As more and more automotives go on the road, safety becomes more important. A report stated that every year there were more than 500,000 accidents in the United States and these accidents caused millions of death. In order to prevent from more accidents and death, experts and professionals are working on providing solutions all the time.

Traditional safety system also named as passive safety system is designed to prevent from further loss and relieve the influence of accidents. These systems are used after accidents. Why it is called passive safety system is that it can not avoid accidents. Meanwhile, passive safety system is mainly designed for drivers to control and limit the position of the drivers, prevent from collision, and decrease the power of collision.

The following are passive safety products on the marketï¼Â›

Safety glasses are made of tempered glasses and laminated glasses. Traditional tempered glasses are easily smashed into pieces and hurt people. Laminated glasses generally has three layers and the middle layer is viscous. The viscous layer will adhere to the interior and outer layer to prevent people from hurting.

When accidents happen, safety belts will control the movement of drivers to prevent driver from forwarding and hitting the windshield.

Air bags mainly placed in front of the drivers and co-drivers, left and right side, and the car top. Every safety bag has SRS (Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System) sign to prevent people from hurt caused by inertia.

Safety seat is designed for children in case of sudden braking.

The difference between passive safety system and active safety system is that active safety system is used before accidents and prevent from accidents in the true sense. The main design point of active safety system is to avoid lane departure and guarantee stable driving.

The following are main active safety system on the marketï¼Âš

AWS shorted for Advanced Warning System is accident prevention and alleviation aided system to provide audio and video alarm for drivers. Surveys indicated that tiredness and unconsciousness are the main reason of accidents. Most accidents only allow 3 seconds for the drivers to take actions. And these reasons generally caused lane departure and rear-end collision. AWS added laser, radar, thermal sensor to get farther vision of front conditions and give more time for drivers to take actions. Protruly active safety system is one of AWS on the market.

TCS is called drafting-force control system and tracking control system. When automotives are driven on the smooth road, the tires get slippery easily and then the direction will change, lose control. TCS detects the condition of tire based on electronic sensor and adjusts the output power to control the tire.

ABS is shorted for Anti-Blocking System. Most cars have installed this system already. When drivers make a sudden brake and the car should stop immediately, but sudden brake will easily block tire, for example the car will lose the turn ability if front tire blocks. ABS will solve the problem of tire block to avoid accidents.

ASR is shorted for Acceleration Slip Regulation. It is also designed for preventing large automotives from slipping and changing directions. ASR is able to decrease the power of motor or control the drafting-force. To install ASR, the connection between the accelerator and throttle is replaced by electronic controlled equipment.
