Airbags, which have been saving the lives of automobile passengers for several years, are now planned for use in military helicopters. One concern about this use of airbags is the risk of eye injuries among pilots who may be wearing night vision goggles when airbags deploy, and engineering researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a computer model that can evaluate the potential for such injuries.
