So are the tests of detection systems for pedestrians which will be implemented by EuroNCAP (video)

Prueba sistemas detección peatones EuroNCAPwe Know that from 2016 EuroNCAP harden a little more in their tests but, how? As the electronic security systems will represent a key factor at the time of evaluation, and in the systems antiatropello will be the stars of the place. Now the agency for the safety of vehicles shows us how they work these tests of detecting pedestrians in video.

The reason in the supporting EuroNCAP to toughen their tests taking into account the violations are, quite simply, that a 47% of road deaths of the 26,000 who lost their lives in Europe last year were guilt of a violation of. That’s why the safety agency argues that the systems of pedestrian detection are vital to reducing the figure, and become a key element in order to pass his tests.


The test consists of three sections. The first of these contemplates a adult height and complexion mean crossing running about 8 km/h. The second provides the same adult, this time walking at a speed of 5 km/h. Finally, comes into play a child of about 6 years that appears running at 5 km/h behind a few cars.

To perform the test EuroNCAP has had one dummy articulated, that not only moves, but is also able to move the legs. Another format, the of the child, copy the characteristics of the adult, to a format less. To recreate this last test are placed a couple of cars that hide the child in the first meters of the route.

cars, for their part, must travel to a speed between 20 and 40 km/h, and to be able to completely stop the car before impact with the pedestrian. A second phase of the test increases speed, between 40 and 60 km/h, and in the same way the car should be able to reduce the speed below 40 km/h to minimize the consequences of the outrage.

Will be from 2016, when you get a new package of tests in EuroNCAP when we begin to see these tests and, as usual, begin to count in the final score. The agency warns that it will be a factor imperative to get the highest score.
