In order to comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard(FMVSS) No. 208 that has been in force since September 2003, an automatic airbag suppression system has become an essential option for detecting and protecting infants and children seated in the front passenger seat of vehicles in the U.S. market. MOBIS has developed the world`s first weight-based OCS under the name NWCS. NWCS is composed of two sensors and ECU. It is sub-packaged in order to minimize the seat structure deviation. In this paper, technical features, robustness and performance of NWCS are summarized and discussed.
