Instead of a seat belt buckle and tongue, the technology features a 'webbing
catcher' which enables semi-automatic buckling and unbuckling. The system is
being introduced on the microMAX commuter vehicle concept designed to travel
short distances in urban environments. It features unconventional upright
seats.

Swen Schaub, senior manager, Engineering Strategy and Communication said: "Our
new seat belt concept is another example of how TRW continues to develop
innovative technology and enhance the safety of passengers beyond conventional
passenger and commercial vehicles."

"The concept is based on proven seat belt restraint functionality. The
semi-automatic buckling offers convenience and ease of entering and exiting
for new and conventional vehicle concepts – helping to increase belt usage
rates over short distances."
