Connected airbag

Rtone collaborated with the R&D teams at In&motion to design an airbag vest for professional skiers,motorcyclists and horseback riders.

Approved by the International Ski Federation (FIS), embedded sensors detect the wearer’s movements in real time to cushion critical falls. It inflates in less than 100 milliseconds before ground impact, to protect the most sensitive areas of the body such as the back, chest, spine and hips. The airbag can be worn under a ski suit or motorcycle jacket and has a certified back protector to absorb impacts. Some ski and motorcycle brands have already integrated it into their equipment: Rossignol, Ixon, Furygan, etc.

A data transmission system enables In&motion to continuously analyse and optimise the detection system.

Our teams continue to support the startup in manufacturing its product.

The product won several awards in 2016, including a CES Innovation Award and the Red Dot Award.
