As successful as the current occupant safety systems (airbags) are, there is always room for improvement – especially as enabling technologies advance. With its Automotive Occupant Classification System (OCS), BeBop Sensors provides a new alternative. The embedded car seat sensors in the OCS provide the granular detail required for next generation classification systems, which need to distinguish subtle details and changes to an occupant’s position and movements in real time. The 1-mm thick, waterproof OCS sensor is thin enough to be placed under the seat cover. Continuously taking full seat pressure images real-time, the system detects pressure information and movement from the entire seat for all aspects of physical contact between the occupant and the seat, including leaning forward or back, left or right, crossing legs, detecting the rigid bottom of a child’s booster seat, the occupant’s size and weight, and more.
