Pedestrian crash prevention ratings

IIHS rates vehicles for pedestrian crash prevention, an extension of front crash prevention. This technology is able to detect and brake for pedestrians, and, in some cases, issue a warning to prompt a driver response before automatic braking is engaged. Ratings are based on each system's performance in a series of track tests at 12, 25 and 37 mph. Vehicles with qualifying pedestrian crash prevention performance can be rated basic, advanced or superior.

Pedestrian test scenarios

How points are assigned

For each test scenario, vehicles are awarded points based on the average speed reduction during five test runs. An additional point is awarded in the 37 mph parallel scenario to vehicles that warn the driver at least 2.1 seconds before impact.

Total points for the perpendicular scenarios are weighted at 70 percent, while points from the parallel scenario are weighted at 30 percent. The maximum total score after weighting is 6 points.
