Bosch - Pedestrian Protection System

Why the need for Pedestrian Protection System?

More than 270,000 pedestrians lose their lives on the world’s roads each year (WHO) accounting for 22% of the total 1.24 million road traffic deaths in 2013. Bosch wanted an AI-based electronic system for the protection of pedestrians on the road. It would be safe as well as cost-effective at the same time. The one fulfills the legal requirements for pedestrian protection on the vehicles.

Fast Code’s Contribution:

Fast Code created a proactive pedestrian protection system that uses radar or video sensors for early detection of pedestrians that assists drivers brake and take evasive action if there is a threat of a car-pedestrian collision. If braking alone is no longer enough to prevent a collision with a pedestrian who suddenly walks out in front of the car, the assistant instantaneously computes an evasive maneuver.

As soon as drivers start taking evasive action, the system kicks in to support the steering maneuver. The driver is alerted at least half a second before a situation of potential collision happens. This takes only 5 msec to foresee and analyze an imminent accident to optimally react so that no pedestrians get hurt while delivering increased safety for both driver and pedestrian on the road.


  • Swift altering system within half a second before the incident
  • 100% success rate for system and personnel protection
  • Early detection and instant automatic action
