This paper studies the influence of different factors on pedestrian head injury in vehicle-pedestrian collisions. PC-Crash software is used to construct simulation experiments under ten factors. The research shows that the injury to pedestrians in reverse impact is greater than that to pedestrians in forward impact. With the acceleration of vehicle speed, the HIC value of pedestrians will increase with the increase of the height of the front hood from the ground. When the vehicle speed is less than 40 km/h, the injury to pedestrians in a forward-leaning emergency posture is smaller, and the injury to a standing emergency posture is the highest.
