Volvo Has Introduced The World’s First-ever Pedestrian Airbag On A Car by mrofficial(m): 6:33am On Mar 09, 2012
Volvo has introduced the world’s first-ever pedestrian airbag on a car.

Here’s how it works: When the Volvo V40‘s front bumper hits a pedestrian, sensors register the contact. The hood lifts slightly, and a U-shaped cushion pops out over the front windshield. So, if someone flips over the hood after being hit, the airbag should protect just the spot where the person’s head and neck would most likely smash into the automobile.

Check out the video above for more information.
