A pre-impact inflation air bag system for a vehicle having a preselected decreasing distance between the vehicle and an object is disclosed. The system comprises a plurality of nested inflatable air bags. A plurality of inflators are provided for inflating the plurality of nested inflatable air bags, respectively. A collision sensor produces a collision sensor output upon detecting the object with the preselected decreasing distance between the vehicle and the object. A controller receives the collision sensor output for simultaneously inflating each of ...
What is claimed is: 1. A process for deploying a plurality of pre-impact inflation air bags for reducing an impact to a vehicle upon an imminent collision with an object, comprising the steps of:simultaneously inflating a plurality of nested inflatable air bags between the vehicle and the object for decreasing a velocity of the vehicle; andsequentially deflating a plurality of nested inflatable air bags to limit the maximum deceleration of the vehicle to be under eighteen-times the force of gravity (18g).
