In the late 1800s, an English engineer named George Cayley invented the seat belt to keep pilots safe inside their gliders. On the other hand, the first patented seat belt was fashioned on February 10, 1885 by Edward J. Claghorn. He designed those seat belts to make taxi travels safe for the passengers in New York City.

It was in the mid 1930’s, U.S. physicians started the testing of lap belts and impressed by their convenience, manufacturers were instructed to attach seat belts in all cars.  

The invention of three-point seatbelt by a Swedish engineer, Nils Bohlin in 1958 is considered as the most important development. This is because the seat belts in cars prior to this invention, were two-point lap belts. These belts were strapped across the body and a little less comfortable.

The three-point seat belt which is used nowadays was designed in 1958 by Volvo. These seat belts are strongly designed and works as the best safety precaution for both the driver and the passenger. The three point design ensures to secure both the upper and lower body of the passenger. Looking at its simple yet effective design, other leading car manufacturers also borrowed the design.

After the three-point seat belts were popularized and adopted by the leading manufacturing companies, laws regarding the seat belt came to effect. World’s first seat belt law was created in Victoria, Australia, in 1960, which made it mandatory of the passengers to wear seat belt while on the go. The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act was introduced in the USA in 1966.

So, what is an active seat-belt system?

Active seatbelt systems uses a motor that withdraws seat belt webbing during the life-threatening situations in case of an accident or a car crash.

To activate the active seat-belt system, data from active safety features, such as the electronic stability control or brake assist systems which comes in-built with the vehicle, is used.  Data from environmental sensors or radar can also be used to activate the system.

Importance of active seat-belt system

The active seat-belt system ensures the safety and security of the passengers while traveling. Here are some ways these seat-belt systems offer benefits:

Secures the Passenger in Position

When the car skids or spins or goes upward on a hilly or broken road, the seat belt holds the passengers in their ideal positions preventing from getting hurt or injured.

Prevents Expulsion

If someone is ejected from the vehicle, the chance is that they won’t survive at all, as proclaimed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Wearing seat-belt will protect someone from such lethal accident.

Distributes Impact Force

The lap and shoulder belt distribute the impact of the force over the strongest parts of the passenger’s body. This diminishes the chance of any kind of unexpected injury.


Makes your Body Compatible with the Speed of the Vehicle

If the seat-belt is not activated, the passenger’s body will keep moving at the same speed that of the vehicle and could hit the steering wheel, dashboard, or the side window resulting in loss of life.

Protects from Brain Injury

Car crash can cause traumatic brain injuries in case of a hard hit on the head. Brain injuries may range in severity from minor concussions to deadly coup-countercoup and diffuse axonal injuries.


Active seat-belt systems are used by the most of the leading marketers in the vehicle manufacturing industry. Wearing seat-belts can save lives in unexpected accidents. This is why, seat-belts are indispensable part of any modern car.
