This work investigates the performances of active hood lift system(AHLS) activated by two different operating methods through the experimental test. In the AHLS, the deployment time of the system and decrement of pedestrian injury are the most important factors for the pedestrian safety during the pedestrian-vehicle impact. After introducing the working principle of AHLS using spring actuator and gunpowder actuator, the deployment time of AHLS and decrement of pedestrian injury are evaluated by the experimental test. It has been identified that the gunpowder actuator can provide a faster deploying time of AHLS.
