  • Patent number: 10518683
    Abstract: A vehicle seat includes an air bag, and a controller. The air bag is for holding a posture of an occupant and configured to inflate as air flows in or deflate as air flows out of the air bag. The controller is configured to receive an input of a signal based on a steering angle of the vehicle and to control inflation or deflation of the air bag based on the signal. The controller is configured to enable an active-support mode to cause air to flow inside the air bag in response to the steering angle becoming greater than or equal to a predefined given angle.
