Mercedes develops connected child seat

In its Experimental Safety Vehicle ESF 2019, Mercedes-Benz has fitted a child seat that can tighten the seatbelts and extend lateral protection elements in the seconds leading up to an accident.

The seat is connected to the car through a wireless link and it has its own installation control system to ensure it is fitted correctly.

Mercedes-Benz Pre-Safe technology introduces various other preventive occupant protection measures.
