The proposed work, depicts a novel algorithm able to provide multiple pedestrian detection, based on the use of classical sensors in modern automotive application and context information. The work takes advantage of the use of Joint Probabilities Data Association (JPDA) and context information to enhance the classic performance of the pedestrian detection algorithms. The combination of the different information sources with powerful tracking algorithms helps to overcome the difficulties of this processes, providing a trustable tool that improves performance of the single sensor detection algorithms. Context in a rich information source, able to improve the fusion process in all levels by the use of a priori knowledge of the application. In the present work multilevel fusion solution is provided for road safety application. Context is used in all the fusion levels, helping to improve the perception of the road environment and the relations among detections. By the fusion of all information sources, accurate and trustable detection is provided and complete situation assessment obtained, with estimation of the danger that involves any detection.
