This paper presents a prototype system for the early detection of a car-to-pedestrian accident that has been tested in a passenger car. For environment sensing a high resolution multilayer-laserscanner with a horizontal field of view of about 120 degrees in front of the vehicle is used, which covers more than 70% of all car-to-pedestrian accidents. Under consideration of a moving pedestrian (94%) 2/3 of all car-to-pedestrian accidents are addressed with the presented pedestrian protection approach. A region of no escape (RONE) is introduced. This RONE describes an area in front of the car where the car-to-pedestrian accident is unavoidable, if the pedestrian is detected inside this area.
