This study discusses the influence of the active bumper design on the performance of the selected current bumper in terms of pedestrian protection by using finite element method. The legform impactor is used to test the bumper models created according to EEVC/WG regulations (European Enhanced Vehicle-Safety Committee). The simulation was performed using LS-DYNA. The lower leg injury risk was discussed based on the performance of the bumper. Results of the study show a significant improvement in the bumper performance to mitigate the impact injury of the pedestrian's lower leg.
