Busch also confirmed Johnson Controls was working on system that would automatically lower second- and third-row head restraints when they weren’t needed. They can be considered a safety risk because they block the driver’s view behind. “We’re looking at a pressure sensor system that would see the head rest rise up when someone sits in a seat,” he said. “As soon as the person gets out of the chair, it will slide down again giving the driver a clear view through his mirror.” Busch couldn’t give any time frame for when the system might be available.
