The article relates to methods of mitigating results of improper value of force applied to the occupant's body at a time of an imminent front vehicle collision and preventing fatalities as well as injuries that may be caused. More particularly, the present article relates to a new method of accurately weighing vehicle occupants that eliminates obstacles to improve their safety in the event of a collision.
The statistics show that the number of victims is indirectly proportional to their weight. It means that to significantly improve safety of the vehicle occupants, it is necessary to put stress on controlling the forces applied to the occupants' bodies by more accurately measuring their weights. It is noted in  that the weight of an occupant measured by an air bag system is not the entire weight of the occupant since some of the occupant's weight will be supported by feet which are resting on the floor or pedals. As result, there is overlapping of weight classes in the Passenger Classification System that creates malfunction of the air bag and decreases the number of properly working weight classes to 3 instead of 5. This is a problem that does not allow to accurately weigh a vehicle occupant in a supplemental restraint system to provide the possibility of an accurate control of the air bag inflation force depending on the real value of the occupant’s weight (mass) and eliminate extra force applied to the occupant’s body at the time of collision. NHTSA, Department of Transportation, published in August 2004 requirements of the final rule of Section §571.208 Standard No. 208; "Occupant crash protection"  to improve the security of the air bags for children and light women. An object of the article is to find ways to improve the accuracy of the safety system for differentiating the weight of older children from the weight of the light women passengers and support the documents provided by NHTSA that say the modern safety systems should provide improved protection for occupants of different sizes.
The method described in the present article provides the possibility to extend the current Passenger Classification System by accurately measuring occupant's weight and more accurately controlling the force applied to lighter weighing people and youngsters in case of accident. The article provides a method of accurately weighing occupants of different weights by employing an ADaptive MUlti-force Safety (ADMUS) system that improves the Passenger Classification System for minimizing the risk of injury or death from a possible improper extra force applied to them by air bags in case of accident especially for light adults in contemporary and self-driving or autonomous vehicles
The ADMUS system, with its accurate innovative occupant weight measuring KEF method [3, 4], provides higher protection to occupant bodies of different weights by keeping an extra force from them in case of accident. The weighing error of a vehicle occupant weight measuring drastically decreased in applications [5, 6] by employing the occupant weighing innovative KEF method and using this weighing method and technology based on it to eliminate the weighing error.
