During a vehicle accident, the airbag control unit makes a judgment based on input from the impact sensors, and if the input values meet
various threshold requirements, the airbag control unit sends a signal to the high-voltage battery ECU. The battery ECU then turns off the
high-voltage battery stopping the flow of electrical current from the high-voltage battery.
