About passive safety systems and components testing

Passive vehicle safety systems and components are typically subjected to a variety of tests to assess their ability to perform as intended in a collision or accident. Most passive safety systems and components are evaluated for their ability to maintain their requisite strength and durability over time despite exposure to variations in temperature. For more complex systems, such as airbags, operational testing may be required to assess actual performance under extreme environmental conditions such as high humidity.

Watch our video to learn more about TÜV SÜD's passive safety tests and testing laboratories for various automotive components like seats, head restraints, Dashboards, airbags or steering wheels.
