Add another one to Rivian's list of patents, this time it's for a new type of airbags. The new airbags “may be deployed to fill an interior space in a vehicle to support persons in a vehicle that is involved in a side crash, particularly, a person facing a far-side crash.”

For some reason they used a sedan for their illustrations, but that's probably just for the patent application and not for a new vehicle.

Here's the link to the patent application

Anything to create more cushion to protect us in an accident! Good move Rivian.
It does look like a good idea, let's see if Rivian will actually include them in their vehicles because I'm curious to see how they work.
