OnStar to Expand Crash Notification Capabilities
GM has announced that,
the 2004 Chevrolet Malibu is featuring a series of unique sensors, strategically
located throughout the vehicle, that will notify OnStar in the event of
a crash, even if the airbag does not deploy. The sensors will collect
information about the severity of the crash, which GM says is designed
to help emergency dispatchers determine the proper type of emergency response
The advanced notification
system will be available on additional Onstar-equipped vehicles in the
2005 model year and beyond.
