Interior driver safety isn’t something you should have to think about when you step foot in your car. You shouldn’t have to think about precise headrest positions or airbag deployments for biomechanical and neuroskeletal safety in the event of a collision. In the IMS connected car, you don’t have to – sensors activated as soon as you take your seat are busy optimizing your interior driver safety for you.
IMS has deployed multiple critical safety technologies designed to make driving safer than ever before.
The Vehicle Occupant Presence Detector, or V-OPD, uses a camera to detect and capture the size and position of each passenger, tailoring the airbag controller to their unique physical characteristics. At the same time, IMS’ Occupant Classification System (OCS) calculates the weight of each passenger, customizing airbag deployment dynamics to each reading to protect travelers from unnecessary injuries in the event of a collision.
In an emergency, the IMS Connected car can also instantly send vital information directly to emergency response services. Technologies like this, as well as V-OPD and OCS, are not only connecting us with our cars, they’re helping us keep safe inside them.

While sensors inside the cab ensure occupants are seated safely, a world of information is being processed outside your car while you drive.
The connected car includes active pre-collision radar technology that can see potential dangers on the road and can respond faster than any driver. These sensors can either alert the driver to potential on-road dangers or assist in life-saving maneuvers like braking while turning.
