No. One misconception of airbags is that they’re triggered by impact to the bumper, and this is not true. There are sensors that activate the deployment of the airbag. Sensors are located either in the front of the vehicle in the passenger or engine compartment. Different types of sensors measure wheel speed, seat occupant status, brake pressure and impact, while other vehicle status indicators are monitored by the airbag control unit located in the front portion of the cabin. The sensors relay signals to the airbag control unit, which analyzes the data and can orchestrate safety features, like seat belt lock, automatic door locks, as well as airbag deployment.
