Evaluation of Effectiveness of Left Side Crossing Pedestrian Recognition System as a Potential Accident-Prevention Measure

Fatal accidents involving pedestrians are very common in Japan. Vehicle-infrastructure cooperative systems that use roadside sensors to detect pedestrians in driver’s blind spots are being developed to help prevent these accidents. One example of a system under development is the Left Side Crossing Pedestrian Recognition System (LSP-S). Road tests were carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of the system as a potential accident-prevention measure based on its effects on driving behavior. The results found that LSP-S helped drivers to recognize pedestrians earlier and sped up the judgment and operation timings for deceleration. Consequently, LSP-S is considered to have a high potential as an effective accident-prevention measure.
