An interior system for an automotive vehicle comprises interior elements, actuators for the interior elements, and sensors. When a vehicle collision data reveals a vehicle collision, a passenger's behavior is estimated in response to passenger data and first vehicle data collected, and a second vehicle data stored. A characteristic value of each interior element is computed in a manner to minimize an impact to a passenger in accordance with the passenger's behavior estimated. Then, the actuators are controlled in response to the characteristic value computed.
