External airbags that pop up on the sides of cars within seconds have been developed by researchers.

The bags inflate from the sill beneath the doors and protect the side of the vehicle from the impact of collision, the Daily Star reported.

Inventors hope to have the bags fitted on premium German saloons before the end of the decade. (ANI)
