In this paper we discuss the design and development of a novel intelligent headrest system. Developed to reduce neck injuries resulting from up to 63% of rear end accidents, this system uses inductive sensing technology to establish the position of a driver or passenger's skull in a vehicle. Once detected, the system autonomously places the vehicle's headrest in a position that best support an occupant's head in the case of an accident. Sensor construction, mechatronic design and controller selection and real world tests of the system under various conditions are covered.
