  Airbag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Airbags became common in the 1980s, with Chrysler and Ford introducing them in the mid-1980s; the former made them standard equipment across its entire line in 1990.
The passenger side airbag on 1970s cars was located in the lower part of the dashpad and it also acted as a knee restraint.
The airbag sensor is a MEMS accelerometer, which is a small integrated circuit chip with integrated micromechanical elements.

The earlier airbags were used as inflatable crash landing devices for airplanes and the first patent on an airbag was filed during World War II.
This device was a major stepping-stone in the development of airbag technology, as it has enabled the common use of commercial airbag systems that have been available since the late 1980s.
Although there seems to be a beneficial correlation between airbag use and lives saved in accidents, there are rare cases where the airbag's deployment kills or seriously injures people in the car.

 Honda Introduces Motorcycle Airbag on 2006 Gold Wing - News & Updates - Motorcyclist Online
The Honda motorcycle airbag system is not intended to restrain the rider, but rather reduce the velocity at which he (and presumably a passenger) is ejected from the bike during a frontal crash—a crash where the motorcycle runs into another vehicle or a stationary object such as a guard rail.
Honda's airbag system seeks to reduce the speed at which the rider impacts the object he collides with or the road.
The airbag module includes the airbag, the inflation canister and the ECU that determines when to trigger it.

 Honda Worldwide | September 8, 2005 "Honda Develops World’s First Production Motorcycle Airbag System"
The Motorcycle Airbag System is comprised of the airbag module, which includes the airbag and the inflator; crash sensors, which monitor acceleration changes; and an ECU, which performs calculations to instantly determine when a collision is occurring.
Inflating rapidly after the impact, the airbag can absorb some of the forward energy of the rider, reducing the velocity at which the rider may be thrown from the motorcycle and helping lessen the severity of injuries caused by the rider colliding with another vehicle or with the road.
The airbag ECU continuously monitors the data received from the crash sensors, and by comparing this data to standard vehicle behavior, determines whether or not it is necessary to deploy the airbag.

 First Production Motorcycle Airbag on 2006 Honda Gold Wing - News & Updates - Motorcycle Cruiser
Honda's airbag system, shown here with the airbag deployed as it would be in an impact, is not designed to prevent the rider from being ejected from the motorcycle.
Honda says that the airbag, which is stowed in the "fuel tank" area just behind the steering head will help protect the rider(s) by reducing injuries in frontal crashes—that is, impacts where the motorcycle strikes something directly ahead of it.
The airbag system independently analyzes input from four sensors on the fork legs to determine whether an impact shock is actually a collision and whether it occurs on an axis where the airbag might offer protection for the rider.

 Seatbelt Physics
While the driver with an airbag may experience the same average impact force as the driver with a good seatbelt, the airbag exerts an equal pressure on all points in contact with it according to Pascal's principle.
The presence of an airbag should not be used as justification for not wearing the seatbelt!
The seatbelt keeps the driver from moving out of the position where the airbag is effective in capturing the driver and cushioning the impact.
