In computer vision the detection of Pedestrian assumed as a key problem, by various applications that have the possibility to impact positively life quality. In recent years, Growing the number of methods of pedestrians detection in monosyllabic images. This paper presents a system that accurately detects pedestrians and provides the driver with informative warnings by using the Pre-Crash Braking System-(PCBS), which is use sensor and the brake-by-wire actuator. One of the main goals of transportation safety we presented in this paper to protect pedestrians from crashes with vehicles and reduce their risk on roadways. We chose to focus on detection by the driver and assume perfect detection by the system according to that we used (use-case) diagram to shows the different interactions available to users of the PCB System.  This proposed system minimizes accident possibilities and reduction of accident impact on pedestrians which keeps   the   driver alert to dangerous situations even in moments of driver distraction due to the functionalities of the system modules.
