Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems equipped on modern vehicles have grown increasingly sophisticated in recent years, with modern vehicles detecting and attempting to avoid collisions with pedestrian targets. While certain studies evaluated the performance of a few vehicle models, the overall development and progress of these systems has not been studied extensively. This paper presents an analysis of the performance of vehicles equipped with pedestrian automatic emergency braking systems (P-AEB) when presented with stationary and moving pedestrian targets. A total of 2374 tests were completed across 20 brands and 71 unique vehicle models. The success rates of the P-AEB systems will be presented. For test cases with moving pedestrians, the performance of the P-AEB systems will also be compared to that of typical drivers. This study will provide a valuable report of the current state of the P-AEB systems as they continually develop and improve.
