Autoliv's active hood is activated on impact at speeds above 20 km/h (12.5 mph) by a sensor that is able to differentiate between geometries (another car vs. a leg), as well as different stiffness (a pole vs. a leg).
Autoliv designed a series of patented "ribbons" into its PPAs that distribute the crash force from the head over a wider bag area, so the bag can be kept small and still be very efficient.
In June, Autoliv announced that it had developed an active hood, a new system that could significantly reduce the risk of serious and fatal head injuries to pedestrians struck by cars.

 98-4074 -- Stone v. Autoliv ASP -- 04/11/2000
Autoliv does not dispute the first three elements required for the showing of a prima facie case for the purposes of its summary judgment motion.
Various Autoliv personnel involved in organizing the RIF, including Stone's supervisor, Seebock, testified that the General Motors position was similar to the work Stone had done at Autoliv in recent years and he could be a candidate for that position.
More importantly, according to Autoliv, is the undisputed fact that the net effect of the RIF was to actually increase, albeit slightly, the percentage of workers at Autoliv who were age forty or over.

 NASCAR.com - Autoliv at forefront of Earnhardt probe - August 10, 2001
Autoliv, contracted by NASCAR to investigate Earnhardt's failed left lap belt, recently staged a demonstration at its technical center in a Detroit suburb for CNNSI.com, showing that in isolated, rare circumstances the improbable can take place before your eyes.
Autoliv had already been involved with Stacy Compton's No. 92 car as well as testing for NASCAR before the Earnhardt crash in February, but it had made its reputation outside the sport as one of the largest safety-restraint manufacturers, employing 30,000 people in 36 countries.
With NASCAR expected to release its findings later this month, Autoliv is, however, the only company so far to be identified as having a role in what is now an almost six-month investigation.

 Autoliv And BMW To Present Night Vision System In Car
Autoliv's and BMW's long-range camera enables the driver not only to see farther than with traditional ``near-zone" infrared cameras, but the driver can also see the areas surrounding the road and detect animals and children running onto the road.
This was a very compelling reason when Autoliv and The BMW Group chose to develop a long-distance system rather than just a near-zone camera.
Autoliv is also exploring the potential of using the next generation of the Night Vision System to automatically identify and warn the driver of potentially hazardous situations such as nearby pedestrians and animals.

On January 14, 1997, a State Board field auditor audited Autoliv’s property tax return and concluded that Autoliv’s tools were not “special tools” and that Autoliv was not entitled to deduct either the cost of the tools or the cost of its application software.
Autoliv requested a hearing on the assessment, which was held on August 13, 1997.
Autoliv argues that it should not be assessed a twenty percent undervaluation penalty because it complied with all the requirements for claiming an exemption for special tools and application software.
