SRS & TPMS SRS airbags deploy in a front end collision to protect the driver and passengers. It typically takes at least 7 G’s of force to set off the airbags. Air bags can be harmful-even deadly. It is recommended that passengers sit back in their seats as far as possible and wear their setbelts to help minimize seatbelt injuries. Children under 12 should go in the back seat. Airbags deploy in 20-55 milliseconds, less than the blink of an eye. There are several types of crash sensors. One is the gas dampened ball and tube sensor. It uses a gold plated steel ball on one end, and a sensor on the other. The ball is held in place by a magnet. If the car stops fast enough the ball will break free of the magnet and roll into the sensor and set off the airbag. Then there is the id the rollemite sensor. It has a roller in it that will only roll forward with the force of a crash. When the roller rolls forward it trips a switch and sets off the airbag. There are also the spring and mass sensors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
