Pedestrian Head Protection Performance Tests

Result of outlook

The Total score average is converted to the injury value. The score of a car with severe head injury (AIS4+) probability of about 50% (HIC1436) is 1.67 which becomes the minimum standard point value, and the score of a car with a probability of about 10% (HIC 876) is 3.33.This score and above becomes level 5. This range is then divided up into four equal parts to make five levels for evaluation.
In regard to pedestrian protection, the pedestrian's head injury value inevitably becomes higher than that of the passengers, given the current vehicle technology. As for the evaluation coverage, it is expanded to cover wider range where certain life-saving effects are expected inorder to promote development of pedestrian protection technology.
