Mercedes-Benz TV: E-Guard under fire.
For over 80 years Mercedes-Benz has built special protection vehicles. The

2009 ESF Mercedes Concept Safety Vehicle
The ESF 2009 is the first Experimental Safety Vehicle to be built by
Mercedes-Benz since 1974. Like its historic predecessors, it illustrates
trailblazing innovations in the field of safety and makes the progress
achieved clearly visible. These amazing but by no means crazy ideas include
inflatable metallic sections which give more stability to structural
components within fractions of a second, as well as the so-called "Braking
Bag". This airbag, housed within the vehicles floor, is deployed when a
crash is deemed to be unavoidable, and uses a friction coating to support
the vehicle against the road surface.
