A significant increase in traffic-related pedestrian fatalities has been experienced in the United States since 2009. Detection-based pedestrian safety technologies have the potential to improve safety for pedestrians. This research was completed to improve ENTERPRISE members’ understanding of pedestrian traffic safety issues and explore recent advancements in detection-based pedestrian safety technologies. This project conducted a literature search to provide context for pedestrian safety issues and trends, completed an industry scan of detection-based pedestrian safety technologies, and identified potential future research for consideration by ENTERPRISE or other research entities. The literature search revealed several factors and conditions that have been found to contribute to higher rates of pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries, which can help agencies as they consider technology-based solutions. The industry scan identified numerous examples of detection-based technologies that are commercially available or being researched. While there is some evidence of deployments and testing, many technologies appeared to be in early stages of planning or implementation. Future research could consider investigating the effectiveness of signage or other alerts for pedestrians; demonstrating and evaluating commercially available pedestrian safety technologies, or research to correlate crash or conflict causes with appropriate safety technologies.
