The use of air bags in the presence of bad passenger and baby seat positions in car seats can injure or kill these individuals in case of an accident when this device is inflated. A proposed solution is the use of range sensors to detect passenger and baby seat risky positions. Such sensors allow the Airbag inflation to be controlled. This work is concerned with the application of different classification schemes to a real world problem and the optimization of a sensor as a function of the classification performance. The sensor is constructed using a new technology which is called Photo-Mixer-Device (PMD). A systematic analysis of the occupant detection problem was made using real and virtual environments. The challenge is to find the best sensor geometry and to adapt a classification scheme under the current technological constraints. Passenger head position detection is also a desirable issue. A couple of classifiers have been used into a simple configuration to reach this goal. Experiences and results are described.
