An effective way to increase seat belt usage
Our Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) sensor mat detects occupants in passenger and rear seats. This information is then used by a seat belt reminder system in the vehicle to trigger a warning light and/or an audible chime reminding unbuckled seat occupants to fasten their seat belts.
Installing Seat Belt Reminders can also have a positive effect on the vehicle’s NCAP star rating, with incentives currently awarded by the European, Japanese, Australian, Chinese, Latin American, ASEAN and South Korean NCAPs. The upcoming Bharat NCAP (India) is also expected to offer SBR incentives.
In the event of a crash, safety belts reduce the risk of fatal injury to front seat occupants by 45% in cars and by 60% in light trucks. Considering 80% of unbuckled occupants fasten their seat belts thanks to an SBR, it is one of the most effective ways of preventing death or injury in a car crash.
