This study was initiated to minimize head injuries, which is the largest cause of increased external activity, traffic accident injuries, and death. We developed a low cost airbag that can be covered by a safety helmet based on consumer needs. The results of the survey showed that safety is the most important aspect of consumers' safety helmets. It also predicted that increasing the weight would present the biggest problem. Curved airbag cushion parts that can be attached to a helmet and the sensor part of a block type were designed. Impact analysis was performed by specifying the pressure inside the airbag and the volume of the airbag as variables.
