Pedestrian Safety Test is the test to assess the protection of pedestrian by executing impact test on head and low limb where injury frequently occurs during the car to pedestrian crash.

2007 : Head
2008 : Head + Lower Limb

It is to provide the information on pedestrian safety to the consumer and induce manufacturer to develop vehicle excellent in pedestrian protection for the supply and spreading of safe vehicles.


Test Target

1. Test Target : Passenger Car
    2. Evaluating method
  • Calculating the head injury standard value after the impact test using adult and child head dummy
  • Calculating the body injury standard value after the impact test using upper and lower leg dummy
  • Estimating the evaluation level by contributing the evaluation point to the body injury standard value already calculated

3. Evaluating procedure
  • Setup the normal condition of vehicles
  • Setup the evaluating region of adult/child head dummy
  • Setup the evaluating region of upper/lower leg dummy
  • Decision of impact position and execution of impact test
    4. Impact test (Head)
  • Test Speed : 11.1±0.2m/s
  • Test Angle : Child(50˚), Adult(65˚)
  • Test Frequency : 6 times with head dummy of child/adult within test range
    5. Impact test (legs)
  • Test Speed : 11.1±0.2m/s
  • Test Frequency : Total 3 times in evaluating region of leg dummy
    6. Indication of Pedestrian Safety Assessment Level
  • After combining the calculated point for each head dummy test range and classifying into 5 levels, indicate the highest level and lowest level with 5 stars and 1 star respectively.
  • Classify protection of pedestrian into 3 levels according to the range of injury in body and indicate the level with color at the front of car for each test area.
