Belt manufacturers will begin to produce electric seat belts in an industrial building in otemesaS. plant.
Before the driver starts the cruise, the motor belt will automatically tie them to the seat.
Although the motor seat belt is not new, the recently enacted federal safety standards require that all 1990 passenger cars sold in the United States be equipped with a \"passive\" restraint system ---
Electric seat belt or airbag--
The use and demand of this safety device will be greatly increased. NSK-

The foot factory in San Diego Commercial Park, located in Otai Mesa, will be there for testing, assembly and transportation operations.
Lobanov said that the San Diego plant would employ about 50 workers once the production of motor seat belts began in June.
The plant is scheduled to expand in 1991, when NSK-
Autoliv plans to build a factory in Tijuana.
The increasing use of airbags by car manufacturers is the main reason why industry experts say such restrictions --
The system market will prosper in a few years.

Car manufacturers prefer airbags because it only needs to work once. \"By the mid-
1990, industry experts said that the United States will install 10 to 14 million air bags every year. S. passenger cars.
If light trucks also need to install these devices, more will be manufactured.
Experts say that if Europe and Japan adopt safety standards similar to those passed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a more profitable market is forming (NHTSA)in Washington.
Starting with 1990 models, new safety standards require all passenger cars sold in the United StatesS.
According to NHTSA spokesman Tim Hurd, there is a passive restraint system in the front seat.
The standard requires a motor belt for two seats or an air bag for the driver\'s side.
By 1992, both sides must implement a passive restriction system.

Passengers limit the market.
But by 1994, airbags are expected to swell to $3 alone.

A collision at a speed equal to or greater than 11 m. p. h.
This impact triggers the ignitor of the system, which contains sodium superimposed particles and then explodes and produces nitrogen to inflate within 1/20 seconds.

The San Diego plant will be used mainly for transportation and testing, he said.
\"A lot of labor is coming into parliament,\" Lobanoff said . \".
