Volvo has developed a rear-facing inflatable child seat which is easy to carry, lightweight and less tedious to pack and unpack. Details such as price and availability have not been revealed yet.

The concept seat is made from a material called drop-stitch fabric which is very strong and can withstand very high internal pressure. The seat weighs less than 5 kg, less than half the weight of conventional child seats in the market. There is a pump system built in which can inflate the seat in less than 40 seconds and can deflate it as well. Another useful feature is the online Bluetooth system which enables the seat to be inflated remotely.

The seat has been deliberately designed to face the rear of the car as the neck of the child is not as developed as an adult and in case of a frontal impact will not be able to take the strain exerted on it.
