Samenvatting The paper aims at reducing injury risk and an overall increase in pedestrian passive safety by proposing pedestrian friendly vehicle design. Statistical data are used to identify the most vulnerable population group also regarding the economic losses caused by deaths or medical treatment. An age dependent anthropometric approach enables the development of specific virtual pedestrian biomechanical human body models. The developed virtual pedestrian models are explored to analyse the influence of vehicles in pedestrian impact on injury risk caused by a vehicle industrial demonstrator using numerical simulation. The analysed injury criteria serve for a comparison of vehicle frontal part design variants. (Author/publisher)
