Check For and Prep the Pyrotechnic Devices (Airbags, Battery Clamps, etc.)

Acting in the role of a Pyrotechnical Device Deployment Tool (PDT), this module will first query all Pyrotechnic Control Units (PCUs) in the target vehicle to discover how many pyrotechnic devices are present, then attempt to validate the security access token using the default simplified algorithm. On success, the vehicle will be in a state that is prepped to deploy its pyrotechnic devices (e.g. airbags, battery clamps, etc.) via the service routine. (ISO 26021)
