Airbag Jeans aims to protect against the majority of motorcycle injuries, which occur to the lower body.
How the Motorcycle Airbag Jeans workThe pants have airbags concealed inside the legs. The rider tethers the jeans to their bike and if they fall, the airbags will deploy and fill up with compressed air, reducing the impact on the lower body. The airbags can be deflated, refilled with air, and used again.
Future development of Airbag JeansThe project is in the initial planning phase and the consortium has begun working on their contributing solutions for the project. The goal is to upgrade the mechanical airbag trigger to a sensor-enabled system. It will eliminate the need of straps connecting the jeans to the motorcycle and offer the rider freedom of movement.
