AABS / Active external airbag


Emergency medical personnel and patients in ambulances are at risk with statistics showing that the annual rate of accidents of ambulance is three times higher than that of ordinary vehicles.
When transporting patients by ambulances, the incidence of injury is very high. This is because the paramedic and the patient who are situated at the vehicle running high speed are unable to wear seat belts properly.
This product is designed to protect the paramedic in and out of the ambulance while the airbag deploys by the LiDAR sensor in advance.
