MetadataShow full item record
The present invention relates to an air bag control system comprising a restraining apparatus adapted to be connected to an occupant side of an air bag, an extension/retraction device used to adjust the degree to which the restraining apparatus can be extended, and a control device for controlling extension and retraction of the extension/retraction device. In operation, the restraining apparatus can be retracted by the extension/retraction device in response to a signal sent by the control device to limit the physical extent to which the air bag can deploy to prevent injury of a vehicle occupant adjacent the air bag.
