News: Mercedes-Benz improves on the seat belt, again


Mercedes-Benz seat belts already have a feature that adjusts the tension of the belt after it’s buckled, using motors in the B- and C-pillars.

They turned their attentions to the buckle, giving it two new functions; When you enter the vehicle, the buckle extends by 70 mmm (2.75 inches) and it illuminates to help you locate it and insert the tongue.

Once the seat belt has been fastened, it retracts again to provide the proper tension around the thorax and lower pelvis.


Mercedes says the innovation will appear in its cars soon.
