Pedestrian Detection Works!

Driving to the gym early this morning before any hint of sun was up. The road is a simple two lane road with no shoulder. and it's on the edge of town so no street lights. Some guy was walking along the side of the road (with the flow of traffic) in dark blue jeans and a black jacket. I absolutely did not see him and the Genesis applied the brakes heavily suddenly such that it shocked me and I wondered what the hell was going on. I did not see him until as I was going by. I don't know what the outcome would have been had the car not alerted me, but honestly I don't even want to think about it.

I didn't realize the 2015s had pedestrian protection, I thought it was only the later models.

I'd sure like to know what the hell that was then.
When I first got my '15 sedan I was driving down a road where a bunch of cyclists were on the right hand shoulder. One of them suddenly weaved out a few feet over the line and my Genny slammed on the brakes and gave me all the warning bells. So while I can't say that it has a particular pedestrian detection feature, it sure picked that guy up.

I just think it needs to be something big and solid enough to reflect the radar beam. Perhaps a dog is too low to the ground for it to accurately detect.
Post from another'15 owner. Although mine this time was a single person, not a group of cyclists.

Has anyone had the car stop completely for a car completely stopped in the road way. They say the Tesla cannot do this, but there is a commercial of the 2015 Genesis with Technology package doing this with a semi truck slamming on its brakes and a long line of Genesis in a row doing the stop. But I think it was following the truck right before it stopped. The detection systems don't work as well if they did not measure the object moving before it suddenly stops.

This is not a pedestrian detection/collision warning system. This is simply collision mitigation. Sometimes the system can pick up bicyclists but I've never had a pedestrian trigger it. I'm not sure I like this. I'm assuming that you were in no danger of actually hitting him?

My 2015 Ultimate "saw" a young man on a skateboard crossing the road at dusk. There was no danger of collision as he finished crossing well before I passed him.

Suddenly? I have not had this situation happen to me (knocks on wood). If I have Smart Cruise enabled and I am going with traffic, it will bring the car to a stop. I have to engage cruise again for the car to start moving. I hesitate to try a full blown cruise control to a light that has a car stopped at it. I do not have the balls to see if it starts to slow down before I have my left foot engaged (I'm sure there are some standard drivers still out there).

It slows be down heavily if I am coming up to traffic fairly quickly and don't feel like engaging myself but its a bit too harsh.
The ACC will not see a stopped vehicle. Look to see if you have a car at the top of your AAC display in your MID or HUD. If you are following a car with ACC on it will come to a complete stop when the lead car stops. It stays active for 35-45 seconds then disengages unless the lead car moves. You can reactivate the ACC by the resume button on the steering wheel or by tapping the gas peddle once.

I’m hesitate to believe it won’t see a stopped object. If it reads a moving car in front, it’d have to see a stopped car. It warns me if I get too close to a vehicle that is slowing in front.

***This is ONLY with SCC activated.
From the owners manual, pg. 5-68
"The Smart Cruise Control
System cannot recognize a
stopped vehicle, pedestrians
or an oncoming vehicle.
Always look ahead cautiously
to prevent unexpected and
sudden situations from occurring."
The ACC display shows a car at the top of the image when it "sees" a car ahead. the bottom car is yours.
