A hybrid adaptive airbag inflator. The inflator includes two separate chambers, each containing a quantity of stored inert gas. Each chamber additionally includes a heating device to heat the stored gas. To provide adaptive performance, one, or the other, or both of the heating devices may be fired, depending upon the severity of the collision. The heated stored gas increases in pressure and breaks free of the chamber to inflate the cushion. The two chambers are preferably provided with restricted gas communication, to equalize pressure between the chamb...
An adaptive hybrid airbag inflator, comprising: first and second chambers, each containing a quantity of stored pressurized inert gas, at least one of said chambers having an exit; a first heating device operatively associated with said first chamber, a second heating device operatively associated with said second chamber; and a restricted flow channel providing limited gas communication between said two chambers.
