In frontal impacts, the steering wheel is an
essential component in fatal injuries to drivers. Due to
the kinetic energy of the driver or occupant body during
a frontal collision, it pushes forward on the steering
wheel and wind shield. In a frontal impact, the driver's
feet actually serve as the fulcrum via which forces are
first transmitted, causing the body to rotate around
them. The steering serves as the fulcrum for the taller
driver. Driver's head and chest hitting the steering wheel
or windshield could result in serious injury or even
death. We are introducing a novel concept called the
Pneumatic Collapsible Steering Column (PCS) in light of
the risk of harm from steering wheels.
