Daimler AG makes safety

Bertrandt supports Interseat in the ESF 2009

The ESF 2009 Experimental Vehicle made the progress so far clearly visible to mark the of safety anniversaries at Mercedes-Benz. By trailblazing innovations in the field of the research vehicle already possible technologies of the future. As a development partner of Daimler AG, the service provider Bertrandt demonstrated its expertise in the ESF 2009: the Protection” safety system into the rear seats head and shoulder collisions the vehicle occupants and also value-added as a comfort element.

In interaction protection

With the ESF Daimler AG is clearly demonstrating its power as a premium manufacturer. The Safety Vehicle, which is on a Mercedes-Benz S 400 Hybrid, combines than a dozen safety – most of them already functional. Bertrandt was the development for an innovative protective pad aimed at rear-seat passengers. The service was given the task of designing and this interaction protection to the rear-seat passengers and to install it as a in the experimental vehicle. The development was on findings from Mercedes-Benz research. A thematic analysis of and chest curves showed in the event of a side impact or accident, rearseat passengers can be by colliding with each even though they are a three-point seatbelt. The aim was therefore to a solution for the rear-seat passengers could be quickly implemented and offered high value-added.

The element should be stable and in order to support the head and

At the same time, the solution offer a certain level of in order to adapt to different sizes.

The component should a rounded form and be positioned in the of the rear seat bench or two single seats.

The perceived of the visible components should be high.

Daimler selected the geometries from the designs In addition to achieving a very appearance, the focus was on functionality and due to the high safety requirements.

the design data were in hardware, the Bertrandt engineers all motion sequences of the new system.

As the development process continued, engineers focused on a protective pad was to be integrated directly into the space above the folding armrest of the rear seats or the compartment and activated as part of the PRE-SAFE® system. As soon as registers a side impact, the system is activated within of a second and the protective function is As a special feature, the protective pad is to be used to support the shoulders of the passengers, while headrests extend to provide support for the In order to achieve the correct of the storage component and the headrests above and to ensure functionality and the Bertrandt designers carefully all motion sequences of the new system the CATIA kinetics program. For when considering the detailed of the protective pad, the specialists to use a four-link hinge. The advantage is when at rest, the hinge

is extremely flat but when it can cover a large distance and offers very high During the development process, the also made sure Bertrandt would be able to the components required for building the themselves. Only the electric was to be a bought-in part. The designs of the components were examined and with those responsible at AG.


The building and integration of the component into the research was carried out in Bertrandt‘s Modelmaking To ensure that the process ran Daimler AG provided an additional unit that was available as a buck for the modelmakers at Bertrandt The components for the storage box were from strong plastic; the components were made steel and the whole system was in leather. The control circuits and boards that ensure functionality in an emergency were by Bertrandt from its Electronics centre. The result of the design is a pad that not only functions as an safety system but also a new comfort function as an additional The pad is designed to be manually extended by the at the touch of a button, when it can be as a head and shoulder support for a sleeping position in the rear during long journeys.

Investing in the future today

In four months, Bertrandt and integrated the new “Interseat Protection” into the ESF 2009. Research such as the ESF 2009 Experimental Vehicle show that it is to invest in innovative solutions at an stage in order to bring solutions with series-production to the market at a later date. is very pleased to have as a partner with Daimler AG and to provided comprehensive development that contributed to a groundbreaking
