Pedestrian Protection

More Safety from Head to Toe

Passive vehicle safety also includes pedestrian protection, which focuses on preventing injuries or minimizing the seriousness of injuries in a collision with a car. Legs and the head are particularly endangered in the event of a collision, for which reason pedestrian protection is exerting a stronger influence on the development of modern vehicles and providing the manufacturing and supply industry with new challenges.

The DEKRA Technology Center offers a wide range of services designed to fulfill current and future test requirements in relation to extrinsic, passive vehicle and pedestrian protection. To this end, two test facilities for component tests are available at the Technology Center. The head impact system is characterized by very great flexibility in relation to the alignment of the test body, thanks to which individual scenarios can also be tested. A second test system is available for leg and hip impact tests.

Our test services for passive pedestrian protection cover all currently applicable legal requirements for national and international approval procedures as well as for consumer protection (EG, ECE, GTR, NCAP, TRIAS). In conjunction with state-of-the-art measuring technology, we deliver precise results that provide findings.

We are pleased that you are interested in our services for passive vehicle safety. We will be happy to put together an individual offer for you. Because safety is of importance to both of us.
