Phase 4: After an accident

To prevent further damage/injury following an accident, and to assist in rescuing the occupants, various measures can be initiated, depending on the nature of the accident and severity of impact:

  • The best possible protection: the engine can be switched off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.

    Conspicuous lighting: the hazard warning lamps can be activated automatically in order to prevent subsequent accidents and make it easier to find the accident vehicle.

    Accessibility from the outside: the doors can be automatically unlocked. Additionally, integral crash joints between the wing and the door can make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.
