Samenvatting The European Experimental Vehicles Committee has set up a Working Group to assess and develop methods for pedestrian protection for passenger cars. The methods are sub-systems tests to the bumper, the bonnet leading edge and the bonnet top. Test conditions appropriate for vehicle to pedestrian impacts upto 40 km/h are considered, with adjustments made to allow for the influence of the vehicles' frontal shape. Evaluation tests on the sub-systems developed by EEVC Working Group 10 have been formed to evaluate a proposed vehicle dimensions measurement method. Vehicles with extraordinary dimensions have been identified. The potential deformation space of the bonnet in a sub-systems test has been measured for these 11 vehicles. The SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research has carried out a literature review on cost and weight penalties, on conflicting requirements and on effectiveness of pedestrian protection.
