Road fatalities are reduced, but the number of bicyclists and pedestrians killed or severely in-jured is at an unchanged level. The introduction of active safety functions is believed to further reduce fatalities among car occupants. There are presently no active safety functions for pro-tecting bicyclists. Test methods will be a key enabler to show that novel safety functions for bi-cyclists have the possibility to reduce and mitigate accidents. The most relevant accident sce-narios must be identified. Test procedures and bicycle test targets are needed.
