Autoliv: Autoliv Enters New Market - Introduces the next generation safety control system

Press release published at The Swedish Wire
(Stockholm, October 25, 2011) --- Autoliv Inc. (NYSE: ALV and SSE: ALIV) - the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems - today announced that it has developed the world's first system that combines the controls for vehicle brakes with the controls for vehicle restraints. The Company also announced that it has already been awarded production business for this new, enhanced, cost-efficient system.

The brake control system can provide key lifesaving functions such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-lock braking (ABS) and Traction control (TCS). A study performed by United States Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) concluded that ESC reduces the likelihood of all fatal crashes by 43%, fatal single-vehicle crashes by 56% and fatal single-vehicle rollovers by 77-80%.

In 2008, Autoliv became the first company to integrate the ESC inertial sensors with the control electronics for airbags and other restraint systems.

"Now, we are taking the lead with the next step in the integration of passive and active safety systems for vehicles", explained David Scroggie, Senior Director, Autoliv Motion Control Systems.

"In this step, we are integrating not only the inertial sensors, but also the control logic for the brake and restraint control systems. We are thereby combining the controls of the two main life-saving technologies, available in modern vehicles: stability and restraints systems. The efficiency of merging the control systems provides significant savings to vehicle manufacturers and enhances performance compared to the traditional, separate systems."

"This is also a key step in the evolution towards a single, comprehensive Safety Domain Controller, that coordinates all the safety systems in a vehicle", continued David Scroggie, and adds:

"This also paves the way for new enhancements of the safety system. For instance, by using signals from our radar, vision and night vision systems, we can improve the performance of both the restraint system and the motion control of the vehicle".

"This technological break-through, in active safety systems, is a major step forward in achieving our accident prevention strategy, " said Jan Carlson, President and CEO of Autoliv Inc.
