Periodic Reporting for period 1 - I-VALVE (INTELLIGENT VALVE FOR PERSONALIZED SAFETY AIRBAG)
Reporting period: 2017-02-01 to 2017-07-31
The objective of phase 1 project was to analyze the market viability of an innovative membrane to be integrated in airbags that has the ability to customize its occupant protection function to the shock conditions and specific characteristics of the occupant .The project conclude with the positive viability of the idea.
During the project, the coordinator has disseminated information of I-VALVE to several potential customers and other relevant stakeholders to pave the way for the second stage and exploitation of the results trough the upcoming commercialisation.
The two concepts developed, tested and patented by MAGOM are:
1. Ventilation control airbag component and
2. The variation of the energy absorption capacity of the airbag depending on its pressure, through the dynamic and reversible modification of the effective venting area.
