Hyundai Dymos develops active headrest  [ Korea ]

Hyundai Dymos and Hyundai Motor have jointly developed an active headrest. At the time of rear-end collisions, the headrest is designed to move 6 to 6.5-centimeter forward to prevent an occupant's head from snapping backward, which often causes whiplash injuries. When in-vehicle sensors detect an accident, the mechanism will be activated within 0.06 second. (From a press release on May 14, 2014)
