Chinese automaker Geely introduced a new safety system at the 2008 NAIAS. Described as revolutionary, it's designed to reduce the risks of getting into an accident when one of the tires explodes.

Developed in China, the Blow-Out Monitoring and Braking System (BMBS) was put to the test at 100 kph on a production model, the Geely Vision. During these tests, despite the sudden loss of air pressure caused by a tire explosion, the system was able to progressively slow the car down while allowing the driver to maintain control.

Below is BMBS trial video, I would say this is great!

Geely declares BMBS is optional and costs about 15K RMB, start to be equiped in 2008. All these videos are slow to play, suggest to use some tool to download, such as "Flashget".

This is really a very good technology that any acute merchant don't miss this chance!

This forum seems very sleepy...

BMBS is really the frontal tech in the field of Blow-out safety. A suggestion is to test BMBS device with your own vehicles before you sell it. Geely would be legally responsible for the safety of this product.

Thanks Albo for the heads up on this new technology. When I first heard of this I was critical of it, thinking it was just a gimmick for Geely to draw some attention. But now I see it differently, and think that Geely has set a precedent here for other Chinese makers to follow. I think this is just the beginning of our seeing Chinese creative genius once again put into action, this time in the auto industry. The late English scientist Joseph Needham is probably smiling down from above.

Geely also was first in China to develop a simple 3 speed automatic transmission. I think Geely is on a roll and will soon enjoy a reputation for innovation.

I wonder if Geely has applied for patent rights for the BMBS system....

Geely launches self-developed driving safety system

September 19, 2008


Shanghai, September 19 (Gasgoo.com) Privately-owned Chinese carmaker Zhejiang Geely Holdings Group has launched its self-developed driving safety technology, namely the blowout monitoring and braking system (BMBS), which can rival and even replace the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) of the United States, reported xinhuanet.com today.

The BMBS combines the machinery, computing, electronic control and hydraulic control, and can monitor tire pressure on a real-time basis, alert drivers of the changes, and brake the vehicle proactively, thus ensuring driving safety in the event of a tire blowout. The technology has been put to the test for many times and has been proven of great significance to the automobile industry.

Compared with the widely used U.S. standard TPMS, which is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside all the pneumatic tires on a motor vehicle, Geely's BMBS system features the proactive intelligent technology for the system to apply the brake automatically 3-5 "life and death" seconds before the driver responds to the tire blowup, thus minimizing possible blowout-caused risks.

In addition to all functions of TPMS and ABS (anti-lock brake system) it can perform, Geely's BMBS uses real-time monitoring of tire pressure and begins braking to allow the vehicle to continue in the direction the driver is trying to steer while gradually reducing speed. The technology has been mounted on police vehicles and fleet vehicles in China.
