In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
DENSO Develops Pedestrian Collision Detection Sensor

- Realizing more precise collision detection -

Kariya, Japan, Feb 15, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - DENSO Corporation has developed a pedestrian collision detection sensor for the Pop-up Hood*. The new sensor more precisely detects head-on collisions between vehicles and pedestrians, enabling the Pop-up Hood to operate more accurately.

"The new sensor technology uses a structure that can more accurately detect head-on collisions, regardless of where the collision takes place on the front bumper," said Hiroyuki Wakabayashi, executive director responsible for DENSO's Information & Safety Systems Business Group.

In the conventional Pop-up Hood, several acceleration sensors are installed along the front bumper. However, detection by acceleration sensors varies depending on which part of the front bumper collides with a pedestrian.

DENSO's new sensor consists of two pressure sensors and a hollow polyethylene housing that is installed across the entire front bumper and conformed to the bumper's internal shape. In a head-on vehicle/pedestrian collision, these pressure sensors precisely detect the increase in internal pressure of the hollow housing as the bumper deforms, regardless of the collision position on the front bumper.

This sensor is installed on the Pop-up Hood of the Toyota Crown Hybrid launched in Japan.

DENSO strives to develop passive and active safety technologies that help protect vehicle occupants and pedestrians, as well as prevent traffic accidents. The company will continue working to realize a safe and reliable automotive society for everyone.

* Pop-up Hood: Pop-up Hood is designed to reduce pedestrian head injuries in a pedestrian/ vehicle engine hood collision by creating a larger buffer space between the hood and hard components, including the engine, under the hood. When a pedestrian collides with the front bumper of a vehicle within a predetermined speed range, the pedestrian collision detection sensor sends the information to the airbag electric control unit to make the hood pop up at the moment of the frontal collision.
