How do airbags work?

The airbag is an essential component of a vehicle which provides the driver a soft cushioning and prevents serious injury if a collision should occur. When a vehicle hits something, the vehicle’s speed will decline rapidly. If the braking is great enough, the accelerometer will detect the force of the collision and send this information to the airbag sensor which then causes the bag to inflate.
