Volvo claims the device can save lives in 85% of accidents where individuals would have otherwise been killed by the impact and it works through a serious of sensors fitted to the front bumper that detect how hard an object is in a crash.  It is claimed the airbag will help to protect pedestrians' heads from hitting the windscreen and metal surround.

A study by the Department of Transport found that 5,065 pedestrians were killed at speeds of below 40mph.

The airbag is being fitted as standard to its V40 model from next month and will on on all new Volvos in the future.  It is expected that other manufacturers will adopt this technology in the future.
