Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) has developed further from just improving traffic safety to an area to help the driver to anticipate accidents. The Pedestrian Protection System (PPS) is a part of ADAS that alerts the driver once the pedestrian is detected. This paper suggests an approach for detecting pedestrians from a real time video and performing braking action once detected. Real time video is captured and the moving background is first modeled. Foreground segmentation is performed on a modeled background. Blob analysis is performed on the foreground pixels to detect the presence of pedestrian. As a control action an alert is given acoustically and braking is performed by actuating the brake pedals using a controller and actuator as a further measure. © International Science Press.
