How Airbag Works
Airbags in cars are paired with sensors. As soon as the sensor senses that there may be an accident or an accident is about to happen. Similarly, by filling the air in the airbag, it comes as a cushion between the driver, passenger and the car. Due to which the body of the driver and passenger do not hit the body of the car and they do not get serious injury.
