Pedestrian Detection

According to NHTSA, more than 15% of the traffic fatalities were pedestrians - nearly 6,000 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in 2017. 

Pedestrian detection systems use a combination of radar, camera and lidar sensors to see pedestrians. The system alerts the driver if there is a pedestrian in the path. If this function is paired with emergency braking, sensors trigger the braking system to slow the vehicle, to reduce or potentially avoid a collision.
