An *airbag* is a vehicle safety device. It is a type of occupant restraint
system that consists of a flexible fabric bag, also known as an airbag
cushion. The airbag module is designed to inflate rapidly then quickly
deflate during a collision or impact with another object or a sudden
deceleration. The purpose of the airbag is to provide occupant protection
and restraint during a crash event. The airbag provides an energy absorbing
surface between the vehicle's occupant and a steering wheel, instrumental
panel, A-B-C- structural body frame pillars, headliner and
windshield/windscreen.
