The ultimate aim of this work is to provide the safest ride for the peoples. The following contribution is to protect the precious life of the driver and the co-passengers during the accidents by increasing the distance between the impact zone and the passengers, peculiarly during the crash on the sides. This can be achieved by incorporating a pneumatic cylinder under the seats, which is then actuated by the solenoid valve triggered by the deformation caused by the crashing vehicle. This makes the seats tilted at the time of the accident away from the near side of the door, which saves the life. The high-pressure energy in the container gives ultimate kinetic energy using high velocity gives a sudden actuation of seats in a fraction of seconds clearly say 0.3 seconds. We have re-designed the structure and mechanism of car seats to make it possible to save precious lives. Our design idea does not stop with single possible way of saving the life, it extends to lot of customization and adaptability based on the car structure and available space specific to various brands and models.
