Hood Pop-Up Demonstration
On average in 2011, a pedestrian was killed every two hours and injured every eight minutes in traffic crashes. (NHTSA, Aug. 2013)
TLX Technologies has developed electromagnetic actuators with the high-speed and force needed to deliver the ultra-fast response required to release the mechanism that deploys any device used to protect pedestrians and occupants in the event of an accident.
- Raises the hood a minimum of 50 mm in less than 25 milliseconds.
- Requires very low energy to operate
- Resettable mechanism after deployment without replacement parts.
