Title: PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION DEVICE
Abstract:
This pedestrian protection device comprises: a right airbag device 20R; a left airbag device 20L; G sensors 30a-30d (collision position detection devices); a vehicle speed sensor 32 (vehicle speed detection device); a steering angle sensor 34 (steering angle detection device); and an ECU 40 (control device) that controls the operation of each airbag. Each airbag 22R, 22L has a tip section 26 that overlaps the other at the center of the vehicle 1 when the airbags are deployed. The ECU 40: surmises the travel direction of a pedestrian who has collided with the vehicle 1; determines, on the basis of the surmised results, the airbag device to be operated and the operation timing thereof, out of the airbag devices 20R, 20L; and controls the operation of each airbag device 20R, 20L, on the basis of the determination results.
